Reviews

PRAISE FOR THE BANKER AND THE BLACKFOOT "Not just a biography, not just a social history...the book allows Chamberlin...to look back at the roots of the modern relationship between the First Nations of the plains and the white settlers...It's a wrenching account of betrayal and loss...and a reminder of our common history. There is...power in such a story."--VANCOUVER SUN ..".The Banker and the Blackfoot tells a broader story through an intimate one about Cowdry...and Crop Eared Wolf. It's a story about a unique time and place, where settlers, First Nations and the Metis lived with a sense of mutual respect..."--CALGARY HERALD PRAISE FOR J. EDWARD CHAMBERLIN'S HORSE "A paean to the horse, our ambassador between the wild and the civilized...Ambitious and sweeping."--THE WASHINGTON POST "Both as a genuine labor of love and awe and as a treasure trove of equinalia, Horse is bound to find many delighted fans."--LOS ANGELES TIMES "He brings a sweeping historical and cultural viewpoint...Chamberlin reaches back through the nearly 10,000 years during which he says horses have been domesticated."--SOUTH FLORIDA SUN-SENTINEL "If you can't own a horse or ride one, reading this book is a good second best. In fact, it might get you riding, so be careful."--THE GLOBE AND MAIL
