Get an inside look at the way of life of North America's Native American tribes in the years before large numbers of white pioneers began to arrive. This fascinating account follows the life of Hugh Monroe, an English-Canadian man who married into the Blackfeet tribe and spent the rest of his life living among them.
From famed author, explorer, Glacier Park guide, fur trader, and historian of the Blackfoot Indians, comes the memoir of his life with the Blackfeet and marriage to a Blackfoot woman, whom he deeply loved. From 1880 to 1903, Schultz lived the life of a Blackfoot Indian with Nat-ah-ki and her people. During this time, he began writing for magazines, at times running a trading post, and working as a guide in the West.
He met historian, writer, and naturalist, George Bird Grinnell, who encouraged him to write this heartfelt and important memoir. As an ethnography of a people and a time it is invaluable.
Though he would marry again, Schultz eventually went back to live near the Native peoples he'd come to love and is buried in the traditional ground of Nat-ah-ki's people. You won't read another memoir like it.
Every memoir of the American West provides us with another view of the migration that changed the country forever.
