Crow Indian Photographer: The Work of Richard Throssel
Crow Indian Photographer: The Work of Richard Throssel
by Peggy Albright, Richard Throssel, Joanna Cohan Scherer
Book Description:
Born in 1882, Richard Throssel was a North American Indian, of Cree heritage, and an adopted Crow. He was also an accomplished commercial photographer. Throssel lived on the Crow Reservation from 1902 to 1911 and undertook a vast personal effort to photograph the people and places there. He made more than a thousand photographs, thus effectively creating a visual census of the Crows. Despite this prolific and historically significant output, Throssels work has received little attention. In Crow Indian Photographer, Peggy Albright deftly combines biographical detail with an overview of Richard Throssel's photographic legacy. In addition to his Crow photographs, Throssel photographed Northern Cheyenne ceremonies that were prohibited by government regulation. 

The first book-length publication devoted to the photographer's life and work, Crow Indian Photographer provides a compelling look at the photographer, his work, and the culture in which he lived. The book includes commentaries on the photographs by present-day Crow people.

The Way of the Warrior: Stories of the Crow People
by Henry Old Coyote, Barney Old Coyote, Phenocia Bauerle
Book Description: With vigor and insight, Crow elders tell their favorite stories of the exploits of memorable leaders from years past in The Way of the Warrior. Rousing adventures and unforgettable warriors inhabit these tales: the impetuous Rabbit Child, who rushes to his fate as he keeps a sacred vow; the rise to power and dreaded revenge of Red Bear, one of the greatest and most spiritually powerful Crow leaders; the dazzling success and even greater shame of Spotted Horse; and the legendary bravery of Top of the Mountain.

Decades ago, the storytellers represented in this volume—including Carl Crooked Arm, Plain Feather, and Cold Wind—recounted these tales to two Crow brothers, Henry Old Coyote and Barney Old Coyote Jr. The Old Coyote brothers recorded, transcribed, and translated into English the accounts, which have now been edited and introduced by Barney's granddaughter, Phenocia Bauerle. Bauerle’ s editing has preserved the power of the traditional Crow oral tales and makes them accessible to non-Crow readers as well. The result is a work that entertains and teaches readers about traditional Crow leaders and their world. This remarkable collection of stories also shows that the values that guided and inspired the Crow people in the past remain meaningful for them today.
