Crowfoot is the revised edition of the Fitzhenry and Whiteside title from The Canadians Series. This biography of the noted Blackfoot leader explores his life and times during the troubled period of the mid-nineteenth century on the Canadian Prairies. Crowfoot (1830-1890) is considered a significant leader of his people during the times when the buffalo disappeared and unrestricted European settlement flooded the plains. The text begins with Crowfoot's birth during a time of prosperity for his people. But life changed dramatically for the Blackfoot of southern Alberta as traders, priests, and finally settlers entered their territory. Crowfoot's leadership convinced his fellow Chiefs of the Blackfoot Confederacy to sign Treaty 7 with the Canadian government in 1877. Serious land pressures forced the Blackfoot onto reserves and since the men were unable to hunt the buffalo, the people experienced difficult years of starvation. When other First Nations and the Metis began a resistance against the Canadian government, Crowfoot refused to take part. For his loyalty Crowfoot is often considered a Canadian hero. His contribution to Canadian history is recounted in this text that draws heavily from historical documents and diaries. The text includes maps, illustrations, and archival photographs. An index and further reading are included.
