CHEYENNE LEDGER BOOK ONLINE!
Online at Plains Ledger Art (PILA), you can see this amazing, but fragile Ralph T. Coe Foundation collection ledger drawing book. Created in the 1880's, the ledger book features striking images of courting scenes, soldiers, and Cheyenne warriors - many who are identified by name glyphs! This is certainly a book of artistic and historical significance.

Our sincerest gratitude goes out to the Plains Indian Art Project for making this possible -- Thank you!
