The Blackfoot Confederacy, in the early 1800's was one of the most feared tribes on the North American Continent. It is proud Canadian history how a handful of scarlet coated men, the North West Mounted Police, were able to make peace with this tribe, and other plains Indians, with no major battles being fought. All this, however, would not have been accomplished so swiftly had it not been for one mixed-blood scout, Jerry Potts. There have been many historical novels written about numerous heroic figures of the old west such as Kit Carson, Davey Crocket, Daniel Boone, Jim Bridger, and many, many others. Now, for the first time, our Montana and Canadian hero of the famous old "Whoop-Up" country gets full recognition for his heroic deeds. After a hundred years we suddenly realize that another outstanding hero existed and lived an adventurous life, equaled by very few. What he did for our great West should now be known for the great accomplishment it was. Potts was raised at a time when, to gain any objective, one had to be a fighting man, and that he was. His many battles and adventures with his Indian people, as well as his white people on his father's side, make his life a story that is almost on the verge of being incredible. Yet, overshadowing all this, his loyalty to his employers, the North West Mounted Police, made him a diplomat, and a keeper of the peace that few frontiersmen have equaled.

About the Author:

Philip S. Long has Lived his entire life in the west. Born in Maple Creak Saskatchewan, his knowledge of the ranching country of the prairies and mountains has enabled him to write freely of a vast expanse in all areas. His early years in school were an experience in themselves, as he rode alone from the ranch, nine miles night and morning on his faithful horse until his father, T. B. Long, purchased a Model T Ford for his use when he was eleven years old. Long finished his education at Bozeman, Montana. Since then he worked as a cowboy, steam engineer, truck and bus driver, operating engineer on construction, musician, (drums, piano, trumpet and band leader), publisher of a small weekly newspaper and author of fourteen books seven of which were published, until his death in 1979 at the age of 66. From his wealth of experiences the following books by the same author are available: Seventy Years A Cowboy, The Great Canadian Range, Dreams, Dust and Depression, Jerry Potts, Ranchboy Hunter, Showdown At Rocky Butte, and Peril On The Highways.
