Abstract

Bottle Mountain east of Hot Springs, South Dakota is the traditional last fortress of the Indian tribes occupying the region. On the southwest face of this mountain there is evidence that the Indians removed a considerable amount of the rock best fitted for making arrow points. There is considerable loose talus, apparently rejected blocks, about the foot of the slope at this place. Elsewhere there is little talus. Some of the joints have been widened into small caves by the continual "fracturing" of the most desirable rock for making artifacts.
