This is a wonderful assemblage of stories about running among Native Americans. it follows the Taos San Geronimo Day run, one of the most important events for the New Mexico Pueblo Indians. Fascinating! Certainly for anyone interested in long distance running.

The writing itself, although interesting, is really secondary to the photos included. This book always sparks my inner fire to challenge myself on a long run.

Now if I could only find reprints...

The first half of this book is a tough read, it's tedious and boring,a spitting out of facts like your giving data from a history book. Later, as the author brings his account into more modern times, it gets a little better. One thing I did learn from Indian Running was about their stone-age beliefs and rituals that many tribes still hold on to. I always thought that mistreatment by the "white man" had to be the primary reason for the Indian's plight today but I'll tell you this,their stone-age beliefs and "spirituality" hasn't helped either. Oh yeah, Nabokov's casual and almost dismissive recounts of the butchering of missionaries is laughable. I suppose in his eyes, these well-intentioned but misguided folk had it coming to them? Don't waste your money on this one.
