The Piikani Blackfeet: A Culture Under Siege [Paperback] 256 pages
About the Author:
Part beaver, part beaver tale, John C. Jackson has been trying to document the mythic fur trade for over fifty years because the real thing is more compelling than the fiction. His first book on David E. Jackson, concerning one of the founders of the Rocky Mountain hunt languishes out of print as does The Piikani Blackfeet but Oregon State press put the Children of the Fur Trade back on the shelf. Meriwether Lewis is going into a second printing with Prometheus Press which also has the next study, By Honor and Right: How One Man Boldly Defined the Destiny of a Nation in press with a fall publication. A major narrative history of “The North West Company Columbia Adventure” is presently being completed and will provide new insights into a quarter century of fur trade activities on the Pacific Slope.
