Summary

A mixed-genre literary biography, that tells the story of Mose YellowHorse--the first full-blooded Indian to play professional baseball (Pittsburgh Pirates 1921?22). Through essays, poetry, photographs, baseball card reproductions, newspaper articles, and reproductions of mid-1930s Dick Tracy comic strips, this engaging book details the life of Pawnee Indian YellowHorse. Also includes oral histories recorded from tribal elders.

Mose YellowHorse (1898?1964), a Skidi Pawnee, played professional baseball for nearly a decade, most notably with the Pittsburgh Pirates in 1921 and '22. Aside from his baseball achievements, YellowHorse, as a boy, traveled with and performed in Pawnee Bill's Wild West show, later served in the Army during World War I, and also appeared as a character in Chester Gould's Dick Tracy comic strip. After his death, he earned induction into both the Oklahoma Sports Hall of Fame and the American Indian Athletic Hall of Fame. His baseball glove remains on permanent display at the Baeball Hall of Fame and Museum.

Using a structural pattern based on an old-time Pawnee Indian storytelling session, many voices and perspectives collaborate to form a multi-faceted recreation of Mose YellowHorse's life. Poetry, oral histories (from tribal elders), critical essays, letters, cartoons, photographs, and newspaper accounts are all included as a way of focusing on cross-cultural tensions.
