Fascinating, wide-ranging study by expert on the subject describes and illustrates signs used for specific words — "antelope," "brave," "trade," "yes," — for phrases, sentences and even dialogues. Scores of diagrams show precise movements of body and hands for signing. Of great interest to students of linguistics and Native American culture.

The term Deaf-Mutes is no longer considered to be politiacally or morally correct.
