MY LIFE AS AN INDIAN

Back in the days when the plains were still rich with buffalo, James Willard Schultz left his New England home as a young man and went to trade among the Indians. His ready interest and acceptance of them was appreciated by the tribe of Piegan Blackfeet he joined for a time and into which he eventually married. Though on the whole prosaically recounted, some incidents have the freshness of an immediately inquisite mind. Mr. Robert E. Gard's editing of the account has lent charm to the episode of the author's marriage to Natahki, excitement to the hunting and war parties in which Schultz participated and a current interest to the Indian ways and customs described.
