Adventures of a Plains Indian pony. In the late 1920s and early 1930s Brown's style was rather tight. Gradually his line grew more fluid and lively, and this is a great example of that early development. Brown used the "coups" phrase in other presentation copies of this book. Here he untypically made a small error in the word "may," which he erased and corrected.
