About the Author

Neil Van Sickle graduated from the United States Military Academy at West Point in 1938. During his career, he served in various command and staff positions during World War II and the Cold War. He wrote and edited Modern Airmanship, which became an authoritative source of information for private pilots. He retired from the Air Force in 1968. Van Sickle’s interest in Indians and the fur trade grew out of his youth spent in North Dakota in close proximity to the rivers and streams used by the Mandan and the Hidasta. In retirement he owned and operated a horse ranch in South Dakota and served two terms as County Commissioner. He currently lives in Kalispell, Montana. Evelyn Rodewald grew up along the Missouri River in northeastern Montana near the Assinniboine and the Sioux. She earned her master’s in American history with an emphasis on the Indians of the Columbia Plain from Washington State University. During her career she taught school, lived and worked internationally, and edited an international newsletter for veterinarians. Upon retirement she and her husband, Gordon, returned to Montana and live in Whitefish.

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Barbara G Lee on August 27, 2013
Format: Paperback
As a retired teacher, I have read a number of books about specific Indian tribes and can easily say that this book is the most comprehensive I have ever come across. I would rate it a "must have" for any library. The authors not only describe what life was like in the various tribes but they also document the many companies, explorers and investors involved in the important fur trade. The research must have taken years to compile; many historical sites were visited, archives of Hudson Bay company were researched, Library of Congress holdings examined and so much more. It was a joy to look at the many maps, diagrams, charts, photographs and paintings included. The number and variety of animal pelts involved in this trade came as a shock to me- never had I imagined that it would be so vast and diverse. There was also information about several Indian tribes that I had never before read anything about. There are 24 pages of notes, 22 pages of bibliography and 35 pages in the index of this book. Such an amazing resource!

I gave this book a 5 star rating because it is so well researched and such an interesting read. The nineteen chapters cover all the Indian tribes in North America starting on the East Coast and working westward. The 414 pages were a joy to read. Neil Van Sickle and Evelyn Rodewald are currently living in the Whitefish, Montana area. I found their volume at a bookstore in nearby Kalispell. I always enjoy reading books by local authors, but I was so impressed with this one that I just had to share my impression.

I hope you will enjoy this book as much as I did.
