Overview

First published in 1907, My Life as an Indian is the memoir of J. W. Schultz’s life as a young white man among the Piegan Blackfeet in the Montana Territory. Out of curiosity and in search of adventure, Schultz went west and became a trapper and trader. He was inspired by the journals of Lewis and Clark and George Catlin’s Oregon Trail, but found a wholly different source of inspiration when he met the Blackfeet and quickly settled into their lifestyle, even taking a Blackfoot woman for his wife and riding along with the men on buffalo hunts and wars with neighboring tribes.

Excellent book. Each chapter is a good story. Details James Schultz's life in the early west as a trader and married to an Indian girl. Many interesting characters are in his stories. Happens during the end of the Buffalo.

This is sich a great book. I could see and feel everything the writer told about. How I fell in love with the people and cried at their losses. I hope that others will read this book and see life for the Indians through the writers eyes. I cried at the ending. A must read for everyone.
