About this title:

Synopsis: Includes registers of students, staff, teachers, Indian chiefs and visitors of the school.

From the Inside Flap: The Carlisle Indian Industrial School was founded in 1879 by Captain Richard H. Pratt. Carlisle was the first Indian boarding school deliberately located far from the reservation, in an Eastern environment free of the West's anti-Indian prejudices and free from the influences of native cultures.

Captain Pratt, a career soldier and Indians' friend, believed given equal opportunities, Indians could become contributing members of American society. This goal of acculturation was to be accomplished by "total immersion" in the white man's world.

More than 8,000 students from virtually every tribe in the country came to Carlisle during its thirty-nine years of existence.

Book Description Cumberland County Historical Society, 1993. Hard Cover. Book Condition: Collectible Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. First Edition. Fine condition oversize hardcover book in very good plus condition dust jacket. NOT an ex library book or a remainder. The book is tightly bound and square and the pages are crisp, clean, notation and defect free. Part of a limited edition of 2000 of which this is # 1757. Has a price sticker inside the front cover on the dust jacket. The dust jacket is very clean but has a minor tear near the bottom on the front of the jacket and minor chipping. The rear of the dust jacket has a minor stain. There was a sheet inside the book listing Seneca, Tonawanda or Iroquois Seneca students of the school from 1879 - 1918 and I will include this list with the book. A fascinating look at the Carlisle Indian School. Size: 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 006789
