From 1870 to 1900, Red Crow was head chief of the Blood tribe, a part of the great Blackfoot nation. As a warrior, diplomat, and statesman, he dominated the affairs of the largest reserve in Canada for more than two decades, keeping his people at peace, yet never letting them surrender their pride and dignity. Red Crow was an important leader and a significant Canadian, yet until the publication of "Red Crow: Warrior Chief in 1980, he had been virtually ignored in the pages of history. Hugh Dempsey's twenty years of research and extensive interviews with members of the Blood tribe resulted in this landmark biography of a man whose wisdom, strength, and wise counsel are still felt today on the Blood Reserve in southern Alberta.
