Chief Piapot, a great plains Chief who lived through the land grabbing 1870’s, was known on the plains as a fearless warrior, diplomat, shaman, cattle runner and horse thief. This novel offers an account of the trials and tribunals of the Assiniboine, Cree, Sioux, and Blackfoot plains Indians. It is about the coming of the Northwest Mounted Police in 1874 to the Cypress Hills, the slaughter of buffalo so great it almost lead to their extinction and the coming of the Canadian Pacific Railroad in 1881.
