284pp. Octavo [20.5 cm] Bright orange cloth covered boards with black and purple decorative ink stamped titles and designs on the spine and front cover. Illustrated endsheets. Very good. The edges of the covers are bumped and gently rubbed. The front endsheet has a former owner's name, along with a date, written twice in pen. There is a very small piece of paper adhered to the rear pastedown. The dust jacket is in good condition only, with heavy rubbing and mild soiling. The edges are chipped and creased and have multiple small losses. The largest loss is from the head of the spine, and measures 1 and 1/4 inch wide by 1/2 inch deep. There are also several small 1 inch long closed tears either in the edges or stemming from the losses at the edges. There is a tiny open tear along the fold of the front inside flap.
Grace Moon also wrote Lost Indian Magic. Grace Moon's husband, Carl Moon viewed himself as a visual historian contributing to both the scientific and artistic communities. "About the only thing we have thus far overlooked taking from the Indian is his right to perform his religious rites with their accompanying dances in his own way." -Carl Moon
