Long Lance : the True Story of An Impostor

Book - 1982
Rate this:
The "facts" were irresistible: a full-blooded Indian - born in a Montana teepee - tribal wars - a presidential appointment to West Point - athlete and scholar - hero at Vimy Ridge with the Canadian Expeditionary Force - first-rate journalist - aviator and movie star - darling of Broadway. Little wonder that the attractive Long Lance was lionized by the North American press in the 1920s as the pre-eminent Indian spokesman of his day, and that he remained a figure of mystery and legend for decades after. Yet, the true story begins not in the buffalo hunting grounds of the western plains, but in the midst of the stifling racial prejudice of the Old South. It is the tale of a flamboyant impostor, a dangerous masquerade, and a brief life of extraordinary and genuine accomplishment.
