Abstract:

Lanterns on the Prairie explores the motivations of the players in McClintock's story and the historic context of his engagement with the Blackfeet. The essayists offer fascinating vignettes, including McClintock's encounters with such luminaries as Theodore Roosevelt, Andrew Carnegie, and the Cronw Prince of Prussia, and an ill-fated attempt to stage an opera based on Blackfeet musical themes. The photographys themselves provide an irreplaceable visual record of the Blackfeet during a pivotal period in their history.
