The times are changing faster than Running Elk can keep up with. Every day when the Comanche wakes up, there are fewer buffalo and more white settlers invading the plains where he and his people make their home. Angered as he is by the relentless assault on the land he loves, Running Elk doesn’t think about the differences between his people and the settlers when he spots Alexandria Standish picking flowers one day. The woman’s beauty bowls him over, and Running Elk knows he’ll never be the same again, just like he knows he won’t be able to avoid seeking her out, again and again, no matter the consequences.Alexandria doesn’t know what to think when she encounters the quiet, handsome Comanche warrior just beyond her wagon train’s encampment. She’s never met anyone who makes her feel this way—not even her husband, who is more brother to her than lover, truthfully. But Running Elk stirs something in her … something she can’t let go of, no matter what. And when he kisses her for the first time, she knows that her world has been forever changed. Will their love be able to conquer the tide of change sweeping across the country, threatening the only life Running Elk and his tribe have ever known?

Through an incredible hockey team, issues of class, courage, inequality, compassion and gender roles are explored with an undercurrent plea for tolerance and justice It is a coming of age saga about Monte and Ted, two young hockey players on a town team that has a new coach who has vowed to turn what is termed an un-coachable pack of rogues into a cohesive team of winners. These boys become enamoured with a young Cree maiden who has a dark secret that has kept her on the periphery of respectability for many years. Is she really the dark force of evil that so many portray her to be? One of the two young men will find out much more than expected when going in search of the truth.

The Dreadful River Cave: Chief Black Elk's Story (1920)
The Dreadful River Cave: Chief Black Elk's Story
This book is a thrilling Indian story written by a famous old-time frontiersman James Willard Schultz, (1859 to 1947). Schultz was a noted author, explorer, Glacier National Park guide, fur trader and historian of the Blackfoot Indians. While operating a fur trading post at Carroll, Montana and living amongst the Pikuni tribe during the period 1880-82, he was given the name "Apikuni" by the Pikuni chief, Running Crane. Schultz is most noted for his prolific stories about Blackfoot life and his contributions to the naming of prominent features in Glacier National Park. Mr. Schultz is one of the last of the old-time frontiersmen, who was with a tribe of Blackfeet for years; and his books, into which he puts his rich store of memories of bygone days, have been called “the best of their kind ever written. The dreadful river cave tells the story of a young, brave, black Elk, and his exciting adventures centering about a mysterious cave behind a water-fall. Like Mr. Schultz's other books, this story deals with real live Indians, not book Indians, and has plenty of action and interesting Indian lore.

An Indian Winter or With the Indians in the Rockies (1913) (With Active Table of Contents)
An Indian Winter or With the Indians
J. W. Schultz (1859–1947) was an author, explorer, and historian known for his historical writings of the Blackfoot Indians in the late 1800s, when he lived among them as a fur trader. In 1907, Schultz published My Life as an Indian, the first of many future writings about the Blackfeet that he would produce over the next thirty years. Schultz lived in Browning, Montana. "With the Indians in the Rockies" is by a Rocky Mountain veteran, J. W. Shultz, and is “real stuff,” vivid and exciting, with the value that comes from firsthand knowledge. It is the story of Thomas Fox, a trapper, whose life was spent among the Indians——friendly and hostile,—in the pursuit of his calling, and who told the story to Mr. Schultz around the camp-fire. Buffalo-hunting, rowing up the Missouri, fights with Indians, the discovery that his Uncle Wesley was married to a squaw, to whom he became very much attached, exploring the Rocky Mountains, adventures in the snow, bear hunting and the like make up the story.It is a story of out-door adventure, Indians, wild animals, and the perils of a mountain winter that has seldom been equalled in absorbing vividness and power. Mr. Schultz's work bids fair to become a classic for old and young alike. Few men are now left who can write with such knowledg...
