Additional Information

A fur trader from 1878 to 1904, Schultz married a Pikuni (Blackfoot) woman, became a member of the tribe, and was given the Blackfoot name Apikuni. With the disappearance of the buffalo it was as difficult for Schultz to adjust to the new way of life as it was for the other Blackfeet. He took to the mountains and explored the eastern slope of the Rockies, hunting game and guiding other hunters and explorers, including George Bird Grinnell, the Baring brothers, and Ralph Pulitzer. He named mountains, glaciers, and lakes; he was the first to identify the mountain goat; and through his and Grinnell’s efforts the northern portion of the American Rockies was set apart as Glacier National Park.

J. W. Schultz was a storyteller extraordinaire, not an historian. If you want the true flavor of the times and people portrayed in this book, without being a stickler for correct dates and perhaps even names, then this book is for you.
While this book has its place, read The Ways of My Grandmothers by Beverly Hungry Wolf if you want to know what it was like to BE Indian. Being from Montana I'm very familiar with Schultz and his wife; and their involvement in the loss and recovery of medicine bundles that went to Bernadotte in Sweden. Schultz was 88 when he died in 1947 so his wonderful story telling has its place. But, in general, I'm leery of books that make it appear that Indian culture is a pre-20th century phenomena when it is alive and well NOW. I would wish that if you enjoy this book that you would also take a moment to read contemporary authors on what it is like on the Red Road today. Native America, today, is alive and well. There are problems in any culture, but the gifts are many. Hope to see you on the pow-wow trail!
