Charles Miles has been a student of the American Indian for more than half a century. Born in 1894 at Claquato, Washington, a pioneer settlement built on the site of an Indian village, he spent his early years digging up arrowheads in the schoolyard and listening to ancient tribal legends told by Indian friends.
Although he has been a commercial artist, soldier, newspaperman, historian and high school teacher, he has continued to be fascinated with the Indian’s’ way of life. He began collecting Indian and Eskimo artifacts on a scholarly basis some twenty years ago. Photographs of many of the items in his collection form the basis for this book.
A graduate of the University of California, he is an active member of many leading archeological societies.
