MAILS, Thomas E.

(Sioux Falls): (Center for Western Studies), (1978). First edition. One of 250 specially bound and numbered copies, signed by the author. Quarto. xii, 395, [1] pp. Densely illustrated from photographs and drawings by the author.

Mails participated in a Sundance Ceremony in 1976 and writes about it in this book. The Sun Dance is a ceremony practiced differently by several North American Indian Nations, but many of the ceremonies have features in common, including dancing, singing and drumming, the experience of visions, fasting, and, in some cases, self-torture. It was the most spectacular and important religious ceremony of the Plains Indians of 19th-century North America, ordinarily held by each tribe once a year usually at the time of the Summer Solstice.
