Synopsis: During his years at the Colville Agency, Gwydir oversaw Salishan tribes from the Spokane, Coville and Courer d'Alene reservations. Contents: Preface; Introduction; A Record of the San Poil Indians and Chief Skolaskin; Chief Tonasket of the Okanogans; Prehistoric Spokane and Impressions of Chief Lot and Chief Garry; The He He Stone; The Legend of Concully; An 'Old Scout' Recalls a Blackfeet Raid; The Adventurous Brave; Appendices; Index. Major Rickard Daniel Gwydir (1844 - 1925) was a Confederate soldier, Indian agent and early Washington pioneer. Gwydir was born in Calcutta, India to Richard McKenna Gwydir, a Protestant Irish soldier in the British Army, and Jane Prendible, also Irish. His father died of cholera when he was two, and his mother took him to the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland and later Brooklyn, New York City before settling in Kentucky in the 1850s. By that time she had remarried to Daniel Ruttle. In 1861, at the age of 16, Gwydir enlisted in the Confederate States Army, spying and scouting for John Hunt Morgan's raiders of Covington, Kentucky. After the American Civil War, Gwydir worked for his stepfather in the pork packing and distillation business before embarking on his long career in public service. He served as Covington's Superintendent of Public Works and city auditor, and as gauger for the Internal Revenue Service. In 1886, President Grover Cleveland appointed Gwydir Indian agent to the Colville Indian Reservation in Northeast Washington. This began his life as a pioneer, diplomat, administrator, and appreciator of Indian and pioneer life. In 1889 he prospected gold and mined the remote hills of the Inland Empire, and he served as Chinese Inspector for the Treasury from 1893 to 1898. In 1901 Gwydir settled in Spokane and became a prominent resident and respected public servant there. Newspapers from the era refer to him frequently; he was known as the 'Barbecue King of the Inland Empire' as well as for his vigorous health.
