The Tree by Grey Owl [1937]

£19.99

Product description

Reprint Edition, published in 1937, by Lovat Dickson. First published in book form in 1937.

This is one of a number of books by Wa-Sha-Quon-Asin (Grey Owl) describing events in Native American history. It is illustrated by the author and Webster Murray. An unusual book in that it purports to tell the stories from the Native American view point. For anyone with an interest in the 'Wild West' this a great book to own.

Grey Owl was the name British-born Archibald Belaney (1888 – 1938) chose for himself when he took on a fraudulent First Nations identity for himself as an adult. While he achieved fame as a conservationist during his life, after his death the revelation of his non-Native origins and other autobiographical fabrications negatively affected his reputation.

There is small amount of light rubbing wear on the cover, the internal pages are in a pretty good clean condition.
