Thomas Fox, a young white trapper, and his Blackfoot friend, Pitamakan, cross the Rockies searching for better trapping and are captured and robbed by enemy Indians

This book is affectionately dedicated to my wife. Celia hawkins schultz. Whose good comradeship and sympathy have been my greatest help in writing the tale. When in the seventies I turned my back on civilization and joined thetrappers and traders of the Northwest, Thomas Fox became my friend. Wewere together in the Indian camps and trading posts often for months ata time; he loved to recount his adventures in still earlier days, andthus it was that I learned the facts of his life.

While Uncle Wesley was with us, mother always let me put away my books,and not say any lessons to her, and I went with him everywhere in thetown. I liked best to go with him to the levee and see the trappers andtraders coming in, their bateaux loaded down with beaver and other furpelts. Nearly all these men wore buckskin clothes and moccasins, andfur caps of their own make. They all had long hair and big whiskers andmustaches that looked as if they had been trimmed with a butcher-knife.

James Willard Schultz can really spin a tale. His fluid writing style makes it easy for youngsters and oldsters to enjoy the life and times of the Northern Rockies when the buffalo still roamed in the mid to late 1800's. This is a story about two young boys who got stranded on a hunting expedition by an early winter storm. It is a tale of using skills they learned from their elders to survive attacks from enemies and animals and also the ferocious winter weather.

Good read but absolutely the worst job of converting a book to Kindle format ever. Typos, repeatative language, and spacing errors on every page.

Great story. This author is a good story teller. Poor editing. We all expect more these days. K k k

Was a book that my husband's mother read to him 40 years ago and was wonderful to get a copy to read to our grandchildren.

My uncle bought this book for me many, many years ago. I read it then I read it again several times. I have purchased this current book for my grandchildren. I am sure they will enjoy it as much as I did all those years ago.

This is a first hand account of living with the Blackfoot tribe, and recounts stories told to Schwartz by his indian friends and elders.
Gogal
I like historical books about the Native Americans and living in the area where much of this occurred increases that interest. Good, easy read.
