The End of the Dream and other stories

Originally published at the beginning of the twentieth century, the short stories of John G Neihardt deserve to be better known. Their flesh and blood Indians were practically unprecedented in an era when the fiends of dime novels and idealization s of Cooper were still the literary norm. Owing much to young Neihardt’s intimate association in eastern Nebraska, the stories were of an Indian cast overlooked as the years brought laurels to the aurhor of A Cycle Of The West and Black Elk Speaks.  A closer look at them reveals that Neihardt was a disciplined artist from the very beginning.
