I haven't read all of it, but, there is some great discription and history behind why some signs mean what they say. No pictures, but good discriptions if you know the word you're looking for. Use it like a dictionary, very good reference book.

Second only to Sioux Indian Sign Language by Wm. Tompkins. Pre-Columbian trade language in place up thru the first part of the 20th century. Important for teams of hunters where noise quantity is inversely proportional with success.

I bought the book since I read about it in "Wooden Leg" biography. The old Cheyenne describes the author as a very knowledgeable "sign speaker". Actually the book is much more than a dictionary since the author has collected a huge number of stories and information about different indian tribes. Definitely a precious information source on the life of American indians as seen from a white soldier who spent lots of time with them during the last years of their freedom.
