Abstract

Frederick Weygold: Artist and Ethnographer of North American Indians is a biography edited by Christian F. Feest and Charles Ronald Corum. The book follows Weygold’s life chronologically, from his birth in 1870 in St. Charles, Missouri, USA, through his various travels and career paths, until his death in 1941 in Louisville, Kentucky. It is full of detailed biographical anecdotes and high-quality pictures and photographs. Despite questionable oversights concerning the socio-historical contexts of Native American history and policy, it is also likely to please early ethnography enthusiasts, and admirers of Plain Indians’ visual arts.
