The quest of the fish-dog skin by James Willard Schultz( Book )
11 editions published between 1913 and 1995 in English and Dutch and held by 245 libraries worldwide
Old Stone Arrow, the richest warrior in the Blackfoot tribe had offered two hundred horses for one of the magical fish-dog skins. It was a fabulous price, but to get one meant a desperate journey across a thousand miles of uncharted wilderness. For in the 1860's, the American West was still largely the domain of the Indian, and the vast stretch of land that lay between the Missouri and the Pacific was filled with warring tribes who were only too ready to cut down or enslave strangers, whether they were white or red. It would be madness for Tom Fox and two Blackfoot companions to travel the length of this hostile territory. And yet that was just what they proposed to do. Their goal was the Pacific Coast, where the mysterious fish-dog lived. It was adventure they were seeking more than fortune, and in the course of their perilous journey they had adventure aplenty

A framework for military decision making under risks by James Willard Schultz( Book )
10 editions published between 1996 and 2012 in English and held by 213 libraries worldwide
This is a study of the applicability of prospect theory to military decision making. Prospect theory posits that the decision maker's reference point determines the domain in which he makes a decision. If the domain is one of losses, the decision maker will tend to be risk seeking, if gains, then he will be risk averse. The author proposes that if prospect theory's propositions are correct, then it may be possible for the decision maker, by assessing his own domain, to make better informed decisions. One implication of this study is that if he can do the same for a subordinate or for an enemy, he may be better able to predict their responses in a given situation. The project's goal is to develop a framework for assessing risk propensity. It does this by first describing the military decision making process and concluding that it is a rational decision making process. Next, the paper describes prospect theory and matches the key aspects of the theory with the military decision making process. Next, it proposes a framework for assessing risk propensity. The theory is tested in a case study of General Dwight D. Eisenhower's 1944 decision to launch Operation Market Garden. This decision is analyzed in terms of Graham Allison's three models for decision making and prospect theory to determine which model or theory seems to provide the best explanations for Eisenhower's decision. The last chapter applies the risk propensity framework to the case study to test if it can predict risk propensity and its impact on decision making. The author concludes that prospect theory's propositions are valid and that this theory provides a prescriptive way to consider decision making under risk. Although prospect theory does not predict the choice a decision maker will select, it should reveal his bias toward a risky or over cautious solution
Blackfeet tales from Apikuni's world by James Willard Schultz( Book )
4 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 208 libraries worldwide
"Schultz first encountered the Blackfeet in Montana Territory in 1877 when he was seventeen, and he lived among them off and on for the next seventy years until his death. These tales are based on his experiences with the Blackfeet, who gave him the name Apikuni. Schultz's Indian alter ego, Apikuni, plays a role in many of the stories, usually under the name Spotted Robe. Though he was neither a historian nor an ethnologist, Schultz filled his stories with Indian history and with detailed descriptions of the daily life and culture of the Blackfeet."--BOOK JACKET

The trail of the Spanish horse by James Willard Schultz( Book )
4 editions published between 1922 and 2012 in English and held by 169 libraries worldwide
Even experienced warriors would have hesitated to set off on a two-man war party, and for young Tom Fox and his Blackfoot almost-brother, Pitamakan, it would have been foolhardy. But Tom was in trouble. Against orders, he had taken his Uncle Wesley's finest buffalo horse on a hunting trip with his Blackfoot friends. Now the camp had been raided and the horse stolen. So Tom had to turn from the pleasures of the hunt to the terrible risks of a war party -- he couldn't face his uncle again until he had recovered the horse. First, though, he had to endure the sacred vision fast to purify himself for the warpath. It was a tremendously moving (as it turned out) dangerous experience, but one which fortified him to set off finally, alone with Pitamakan, on the trail of the Spanish horse. Luck was with them, but often they were saved only by their own boldness. Once, for instance, they found themselves in the heart of the enemy camp and had to masquerade as young braves from the distant tribe of Blue Paints. Here is a fine tale full of the ways of the Indian and filled with suspense from the foreboding start to the last=page climax -- Book jacket
