Format: Hardcover
The whiskey trade was a significant, albeit largely illegal commercial enterprise focused on Montana and southern Alberta. It had a major impact on the lives of the Plains Indians, particularly members of the Blackfoot confederacy. Although Dr. Kennedy could have focused on the archaeological studies she has made on this enterprise, she choses instead to try to build a more inclusive picture of industry by bringing in documents and oral history. The history of selling alcohol always brings out interesting characters and questionable ethics. You should read this if you think rum-running began with the prohibition or you are interested in the early commercial and First Nation's history of the west.
