A sympathetic report by Teddy Roosevelt of his visits to various Sioux, Cheyenne, Osage, and Santee tribes. Roosevelt comments on the prevalence of half-breeds over their white or native counterparts, poor health care on reservations, and the relatively low levels of racism against the Indian found outside reservations. Good insight into Roosevelt's embrace of the American West.
