Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is an unpretentious, honest, and intimate description of the lives of Blackfeet women both in the past, and in modern times. It describes their role in Blackfeet society, and gives some insight as to their world view. The author tells of her own experiences as a modern Blackfoot woman, and there are a number of touching first hand accounts of older women, or grandmothers, as they recall their pasts. The book ranges from detailed descriptions of some domestic chores to the telling of some old stories, and some discussion of spiritual matters. Highly recommended!

I first picked up this book back in 1999. Everytime I pick it up I find something new! If you want to know how the Plains tribes really lived Mrs. Hungry Wolf's book will tell you. When she speaks of 'grandmothers' she isn't just speaking of her biological grandmothers--she speaks of the women of their generation and earlier. Step back into another time and read how it really was. You'll throw away your Hollywood concepts and romanticized notions.

Since most Blackfoot history is oral, it is difficult to find the stories in print. Mrs. Hungry Wolf has gone to pains to pass on the story of her female predecessors that never needs to be lost.

I love this book. I was lent a copy to read recently by a friend of my father, and enjoyed it so much that I bought my own copy. Beverly is a great writer. Her book is a wonderful and entertaining collection of traditional stories, photos, and even survival tips and recipes. I love her own personal stories and introductions, too.

A very interesting book. The author allows you to see the inside working of a society that is relatively unknown to most. The reader of this book will get a glimps of the life from the view point of a women who from retaling tales of her life we get a rare opportunity to be a part of it. I did not re-sell this book and have opened it's pages several times even after my class was over. I enjoy this book for it's enlightenment of a different time and different thought process.

I have purchased several books on the Blackfoot. This is by far my favorite. Not growing up with the knowledge of my heritage this book is by far my favorite. A wonderful journey.

Great book with lots of information about the Blackfoot culture. Really enjoyed her information about what they eat, how and why they dress they way they do. Good to hear some of the stories handed down through the generations.
