It was interesting to learn about this culture. Just like Pawnee Hero Stories and Folk Tales, I liked the second part of the book better (after the lodge tales) in which the author writes about Blackfoot life: in war, social classes, medicine, daily life, Blackfoot of today (1892), etc.

I own the 1962 printing by Bison Books. I found this in an old, used bookstore. This book is filled with 'camp fire' stories that were passed down generations.

The tales were very interesting. The commentary and history tells a half story that is rather depressing, coming into it after the buffalo have gone and their main ways of life have been subverted. Additionally, most of the traditions discussed are in regards to horses, which only arrived with Europeans, so the older traditions are represented only in the stories, not much in the history portion.

Interesting book. Reads like fiction. As you read about different tribes, you see that most of the stories are the same with just a slight twist.
