This is an extremely RARE book that is signed in the Blackfoot language and translated by the famous, American West explorer, James Willard Schultz. Schultz's son, Hart Merriam Schultz (Lone Wolf), is also a celebrated artist and former Arizona resident.
James Willard Schultz, or Apikuni, (August 26, 1859 – June 11, 1947) was an American author, explorer, Glacier National Park guide, fur trader and historian of the Blackfeet Indians. He operated a fur trading post at Carroll, Montana and lived among the Pikuni tribe during the period 1880-82. He was given the name Apikuni by the Pikuni chief, Running Crane. Apikuni in Blackfeet means "Spotted Robe." Schultz is most noted for his 37 books, most about Blackfoot life, and for his contributions to the naming of prominent features in Glacier National Park. He also maintained a winter home in Arizona.
