Synopsis : From dust jacket flap: "Indian is a magic name in motorcycling. Its mention brings back nostalgic memories of the rich red machines with flamboyant bold striping, lithe of appearance, and, seemingly even at rest, poised for flight. Its distinctive trademark was the staccato bark of its high revving, side valve engine. This was joined in later years by the quiet hum of the smooth-running four cylinder models which could assume a lightning burst of acceleration and an impudent snarl at a touch of the throttle. The cadences of both were to echo through nearly every country of the world. There were over two dozen makers of motorcycles on the market during the heyday of motorcycling in the United States. Yet in the mids of many enthusiasts, none of these quite approached the verve, style, artistic funtionality of design or handling abilities of the Indian. The Iron Redskin is the story of that most loved of American motorcycles. It is a vast work which has taken many thousands of hours to compile, yet it is one of the most readable and interesting histories ever to be published. Because the Indian motorcycle was manufactured during some of the most exciting and changing years of America's history, much of that excitement and change comes through, albeit carried on the saddle of a motorcycle. It is pure motorcycling history told with the pace and grace of a classic V-twin, Indian style!"
