Tribe Book of the Lone Wolf

August 20th, 2009

Note:  The attached pdf file contains racial stereotyping themes that may be offensive to some blog readers.

"Lone Wolf Tribe" was a juvenile series that ran on CBS for one or two seasons, circa 1932-33, three days a week.  The show followed the adventures of Wolf Paw and his Indian tribe.  I haven't found out much about the program, except for a page on a collectors site that talks about premiums offered in conjunction with the program.

In this post, "The Tribe Book of the Lone Wolf", a pdf file of a booklet offered to listeners of the show.  It includes secret signs and picture writing you should only share with the members of your tribe, some info on Native American lore (at least the way that Madison Avenue imagined it), the Wolf Tribe credo, and, most importantly, a catalog of fine "Indian things" you can get by trading "wampum" (ie, Wrigley's Chewing Gum wrappers).

Unfortunately, there doesn't appear to be any surviving episodes of the series.  Anyone have additional info to offer about it?

The pdf file, linked on the ebook icon below the post, is about 1.8 MB and runs 28 pages.
