You are looking at a beautiful picture of Indians in Winter. It was created in 1908 by Edward S. Curtis. The picture presents Two Crow (Apsaroke) Indian men. One is wearing a hooded coat, ant the other is wrapped in an Indian blanket. Both are on horseback. The ground is covered with snow, and trees and hillside are seen in the background. We have created this collection of illustrations primarily to serve as a valuable educational tool. Contact mailto:curator@ol....

I highly recommend this book to any student of natural horsemanship.
