The Plains Indians of North America
A story about the Native American Indians as an ancient Indian brave, Old Grey Cloud, recounts the story of a time before the white man, when a young Lakota girl, Spring Rain, tries unsuccessfully to persuade the young braves that courage is something greater than the acquisition of notches on a coup stick. It is a fictional story accurately based on the historical facts of the Native American Indians.
