Description

1916. With illustrations. In 1877 Schultz went to Montana for the summer to buffalo hunt. He ended up staying and became fascinated with the Indian life and joined the Blackfeet tribe. He learned to speak the Blackfeet language and married a Pikuni (Blackfeet) woman. He became a recorder of the open West romance and writer of stories of the at-large Indians. Often men like Schultz were characterized as hangers-on or romantic reporters; their lives and work show a more dedicated purpose-to know and record the last of the Indian culture in its native landscape even as the culture was subsumed by white settlement, changed by forced moves to reservations, or even outlawed. Contents: I. Two Medicines: Hugh Monroe; The Woman Who Earned a Man's Name; and The Story of the Thunder Medicine. II. Pu-Nak-Ik-Si (Cutbank): How Mountain Chief Found His Horses; White Fur and His Beaver Clan; The Story of the Bad Wife; Old Man and the Woman. III. Ki-Nuk-Si Is-I-Sak-Ta (Little River): Old Man and the Wolves; New Robe, and The Rescuer. IV. Puht-O-Muk-Si-Kim-Iks (The Lakes Inside): St. Mary's Lakes: The Story of the First Horse; One Horn, Shamer of Crows; The Elk Medicine Ceremony; and Na-Wak-O-Sis (The Story of Tobacco). V. Iks-I-Sko-Yi-Tuk-Tai (Swift Current River): The Jealous Women. VI. Ni-Na Us-Tak-Wi (Chief Mountain): The Wise Man. See other titles by this author available from Kessinger Publishing.
