Eighty Years on the Plains
by Marie Rose Smith
Marie dedicates chapter 11 to Kootenai Brown, a close friend and wanderer who loved the open Plains. Described as a “ladies’ man,” Smith tells the story of how Brown lost his first wife to illness and how he nearly lost his second wife, Ni-ti-mous, to his activities with other women. The methods and savagery of the Indian buffalo hunt are also described.
