9 editions published between 1973 and 1978 in English and held by 851 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

James Willard Schultz first encountered the Blackfeet Indians in Montana Territory in 1877, when he was seventeen. In time, he married a Blackfoot woman, formed close friendships with many in the tribe, and lived with them off and on for the next seventy years until his death. Why Gone Those Times? is based on his experiences among the Blackfeet, who gave him the name Apikuni. Apikuni's adventures include taming a wolf, raiding in Old Mexico, and stalking a black buffalo. Although Schultz was neither historian nor ethnologist, he filled his stories with Indian history and detailed descriptions of Blackfeet daily life and culture
My sixty years on the plains : trapping, trading, and Indian fighting by W. T Hamilton( Book )

11 editions published between 1905 and 2020 in English and held by 802 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Long before the American Revolution, fur trappers were traveling thousands of miles into the remote wilderness in their quest for beaver pelts, the frontier's most valuable commodity. These hardened, unsettled men were at the forefront of the Western expansion, hunting amid the Central Rockies by the 1830s and occasionally wandering all the way to the shores of the Pacific. Their lives and accomplishments are vividly and authentically recaptured in this gritty autobiography of a longtime adventurer. William Thomas Hamilton (1822-1908) left St. Louis at the age of 20 to serve as an apprentice to an experienced trapper and hunter. Within a decade of his entry into the trade, the demand for pelts plummeted as hat fashions shifted from beaver to silk. Hamilton and his fellow trappers turned instead to leading hunting parties, guiding scientific expeditions, serving as army scouts, and protecting settlers and miners from Indian attacks. In this memoir, the frontiersman presents a fascinating account of his rough-and-tumble life in the Old West. Six full-page illustrations by the former cowboy and great Western artist Charles Russell enhance the tale

"In the decades bracketing the turn of the twentieth century, Charles M. Russell depicted the American West in a fresh, personal, and deeply moving way. To this day, Russell is celebrated for his paintings and sculptures of cowboys at work and play, his sensitive portrayals of American Indians, and his superlative representations of landscape and wildlife. This handsome book--a companion volume to the acclaimed Charles M. Russell: A Catalogue Raisonné, edited by B. Byron Price--showcases many of the artist's best-known works and chronicles the sources and evolution of his style. Here are iconic images that have defined the West in the popular imagination for more than a century. The volume boasts reproductions, most in full color, of more than 150 of Russell's finest works in oil, bronze, and mixed media. Select examples of his drawings, watercolors, and illustrated letters as well as archival photographs place Russell's paintings and sculpture in historic and artistic context."--Publisher description

Remington & Russell and the art of the American West by Kate F Jennings( Book )

5 editions published between 1993 and 1999 in English and held by 297 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For most of us, the art of the American West is epitomized in the work of two gifted turn-of-the-century artists: Frederic Remington and Charles Russell. Indeed, the way they jointly imagined the semi-legendary Old west to have been has now become the way we imagine it: the images of the Old West that we see today in films, in book and magazine illustrations, in retrospective paintings and sculpture, even in the theater of our own minds, are all in some degree beholden to images crystallized nearly 100 years ago by these two men. The term "crystallized" is, however, important, for Remington and Russel obviously invented neither the West nor the art that depicted it. Artists -- some of great distinction -- had been producing images of the West for a full century before Remington and Russell appeared on the scene, and Remington and Russell, for all their skill and innovative brilliance, worked within an already established tradition. They may have produced some of the most memorable expressions of that tradition, but they never broke with it. Nor have most of today's Western artists really broken with it. Even works as original and personal as the masterly paintings of Georgia O"Keeffe are strewn with such familiar elements of Western imagery as sun-bleached antelope skulls, barren, eroded hills, and stark adobe walls. If the intentions of Western artists have been as various as idioms in which they have addressed us, for 200 years the great traditions of Western art have nevertheless given their works both a common grammar and a special resonance. In this handsome portfolio of western painting and sculpture since the 1820s, author Kate F. Jennings well illustrates the continuities that underlie the seeming diversity of Western art. And by focusing in particular on Remington and Russell, she allows us to see their work in its true context -- as an especially brilliant link in what amounts to an unbroken chain, as a novel and imaginative summation of all that had gone before and a startlingly potent influence on all that would follow." -- Publisher's description

Remington, Russell and the language of Western art by Peter H Hassrick( Book )

4 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 267 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Beginning about 1825 the frontier artists of the American West helped shape the national identity through their collective images of the region. Following in their footsteps were Frederic Remington (1861-1909) and Charles M. Russell (1864-1926), who brought western art to its apotheosis, becoming, in the historian Robert Taft's phrase, "the most celebrated artists of the West."" "As young men, Remington and Russell struck out for the West, seeking adventure and self-identity. Remington stayed for only one year, Russell for the rest of his life. But both eventually became artists, and both took as their subject the disappearing West and its people. Different in temperament and style, they became the focal point of a manufactured rivalry that dominated the American art scene at the turn of the twentieth century and in essence pitted East against West. Camps of followers developed, and duels were waged on their behalf in the press, although neither Remington nor Russell directly engaged in the rivalry." "This volume, the catalogue for the exhibition Remington, Russell and the Language of Western Art, recounts the story of that shared limelight, its interplay and its tensions. It also explores who Remington and Russell were, how their art interacted, and why, despite their fundamental differences, they are so inextricably joined in the public's mind. Their depictions of the West and its people - Indians, cowboys, cavalrymen, and mountainmen - continue to define the West in the American imagination."--Jacket
