I just started "My Life As An Indian" by J.W. Schultz. First published in 1907, it is basically a memoir of his living with the Blackfoot tribe in the late 1800's. Just read two chapters, and so far it's pretty interesting, especially his observations of the land, etc. back then.

It's a good read so far. Even back when it was published Schultz lamented the changes in the land and animals as time went by. He could see the writing on the wall.

I think you would find it interesting. Schultz lived until reaching 88 years old in 1947, having written extensively of the Blackfeet tribe and the Indian way of life. His must have been a VERY interesting life.

I picked it up last night on amazon, formatted for my kindle, so painless and quick. Well not entirely painless, as I get a hit on my credit card. laugh

So far I've only got into the start and now into the Principal Characters.

I'm on page 318, and find it hard to put down. The fact that the book is Schultz's memoir of his time living with the Blackfeet instead of just another "Wild West tale" really appeals to me.
