300 years ago the Indian Blackfeet tribe wandered the northern plains in search of buffalo. The braves hunted on foot, which made stalking and killing large animals very dangerous. Women and children followed using backpacks and dogs to carry things. Young Om-kas-toe longs for the day when he can take his place as a brave. While serving as tribe lookout he discovers a strange animal that has never been seen by the Blackfeet. The animal is a horse and the tribe calls it an elkdog. This is the story of that sighting and how it changes the Blackfeet life forever. The author is a professional storyteller and conducted many interviews with members of the Blackfeet Indian tribe.
