Volume 128 in the The Civilization of the American Indian Series "After 30 years of assessing firsthand accounts (both Indian and white), Pawnee oral history, anthropological and archeological evidence, Hyde completed probably his best synthesis among the many works he produced. Although other fragmentary works have been published on the Pawnees, none has yet touched Hyde's work for comprehensiveness or insight. And as stated in the foreword, no study of the Plains or Plains Indians is complete without some consideration of the Pawnees."-Choice. "His narrative of Pawnee history since the early 1800s is based upon careful research and thoughtful reconstruction and in this reader's opinion is rhetorically superior."-American West. "George Hyde painstakingly assembled information from early accounts, Indian Bureau records, tribal legends, and recent archaeological investigations to present this cohesive story of the early Caddoan tribes, the evolution of the Pawnee groups as they were known in the nineteenth century and their eventual fate on an Oklahoma reservation. His work is factual and objective. . . .The Pawnee Indians is written in the best Hyde tradition-scholarly, objective and remarkable pleasant to read. It is unhesitantly recommended to anyone interested in Plains Indians and their relations with the whites. One item of special interest is the section of the appendix discussing the true identity of the Padouca Indians so often mentioned in early French accounts."-Museum of the Fur Trade Quarterly.
