Dempsey presents tales from the Blackfoot tribe of the plains of northern Montana and southern Alberta.

Drawn from Dempsey’s fifty years of interviewing tribal elders and sifting through archives, the stories are about warfare, hunting, ceremonies, sexuality, the supernatural, and captivity, and they reflect the Blackfoot worldview and beliefs.This remarkable compilation of oral history and accounts from government officials, travelers, and fur traders preserves stories dating from the late 1700s to the early 1900s. The importance of oral history, Dempsey writes, is reflected in the fact that the majority of these stories would never have survived had they not been preserved orally from generation to generation.
