Please do yourself a favor and do NOT buy a book that has ANYTHING to do with the "Long Lance" guy. He's NOT a member of the Blackfeet Tribe and in fact, is not even indian. How do I know? Because I AM Blackfeet.
A few years back I was talking with some relations and I brought up this "chief's" name and they started laughing, "He's a white man from the 'wannabi" (sic) tribe who's never even set foot on our land!" Needless to say, when I came across this book, I thought Amazon readers should know "...the rest of the story".
I can't believe how many books are written by non-indians about my tribe that contain so much erroneous info. If you really want to learn about our tribe, buy Percy Bullchild's book "The sun came down". I heard there's a new book with his stories called "American Indian Genesis". Percy traveled all over our reservation and reserves (in Alberta) and collected stories from our elders for these compilations. For day-to-day living (back in the buffalo-hunting days), pick up Walter McClintock's book "The Old North Trail". This white man lived with our tribe during the waning days of the 19th century. Any questions?
I acknowledge that this guy was not everything he claimed to be, but his story is a fantastic insight into native american life.
I have seen much critism of him, but he was very passionate about native american culture and was indeed very much envolved with many groups.
He is just one of the many authors that have been "rubbed out", it seems anyone that if anyone even suggests that american history was anything other then beautiful and justified they have their credibility assaulted, in life and in death.
If someone went to such troubles in silencing him (another mysterious death) then you can bet he had something worth saying.
If anyone has his original book please contact me :...... as I wish to make it widely avaliable.
