The forgotten massacre

Fools Crow is a vivid fictionalized account of the events that led up the Marias Massacre in 1870 that has escaped the attention of history. James Welsh draws from his family history; from his father, he is related to Malcolm Clark, whose murder triggered the massacre; and from his great grandmother who survived the massacre. It is the story of a Blackfoot brave named Fools Crow, and is filled with his visions and conversations with his animal brothers; of expeditions against enemy tribes; of bravery and of cowardliness. It is a journey through the mind of a man struggling with why his people have fallen from favor with their creator.
