Association copy. This is a scarce pamphlet by indigenous historian Click Relander on the troubled history of the Yakima Nation. Relander inscribed the pamphlet to Erminie Wheeler-Voegelin, a noted anthropologist and ethnographer who specialized in Native American folklore and history in Indiana. The inscription reads: "To Erminie: Please accept another amateur effort and feel free to comment. Click Relander." This was likely in jest, as Relander was no amateur and knew Wheeler-Voegelin at least well enough to have thanked her in the acknowledgements of his 1956 book, Drummers and Dreamers. Very good +.
