As Long as the Grass Shall Grow: Peter La Farge Sings of the Indians

As Long as the Grass Shall Grow: Peter La Farge Sings of the Indians

Long before Hollywood dramatized the plight of Native Americans, Peter La Farge was writing about his peoples' experiences, from songs about Tecumseh and the Trail of Tears to a rhyme about the atom bomb: "Take back the megaton / Give us back our lances / We will make our own wars / And we will dance our dances."
