Annotation In this non-fiction, history of the Blackfeet people, the author writes of the era from the early 18th century to the present. "In the early years of the 18th century the Blackfeet were an independent, stone-age people. For more than a century thereafter they were the dominant military power on the northwestern plains, feared by all neighboring tribes, the inveterate enemies of white trappers. Only seventy-five years ago the extermination of the buffalo, their basic resource, quickly reduced these bold, proud people to a condition of dire poverty, making them dependent upon government rations for their daily bread. For many of them it has been a long, hard road back toward economic independence under radically changed conditions of life." Violence. For high school and adult readers.
