Dakota Life in the Upper Midwest by Samuel W. Pond Introduction by Gary Clayton Anderson
In 1834 Samuel W. Pond and his brother Gideon arrived in present day Minneapolis intending to preach the Christian Gospel to the Indian peoples. The brothers were to spend nearly twenty years learning the Dakota Language and observing how the Indians lived. In the 1860's and 1870's, after the Dakota had fought a disastrous war with the whites who had taken their land, Samuel Pond recorded his recollections of the Indians. Pond's work, first published in 1908, is now considered a classic.
