This book captures the life and times of Jerry Potts, the one man who best represents the turmoil of the western frontier and the clash of two cultures. Born to a White fatherand Blood mother, Jerry earned the name Ky-yo-kosi (Bear Child) for his pluck and bravery. He had a reputation in two distinct worlds. To the Blood and other tribes in the Blackfoot Confederacy, he was known as an invincible warrior, a relentless enemy,and a great hunter. To Whites he was a valuable scout, an uncanny marksman, and a wily horse trader. Potts saved the ragtag red-coated Canadian police force from near starvation and served the force for 22 years. The author has added substantial new information and rewritten significant portions of original research completed byBernard D. Fardy for his 1984 book Jerry Potts, Paladin of the Plains.
