Smith brings to life the adventures and stories of James W. Schultz through the fictitious character of Jim Deakins. The year is 1879 and through Jim Deakins you will take part in the hunting of the last of the great bison herds. You will share in the adventures of the Blackfeet and their enemy the Crow. You will be told stories of that “foolishness” called Yellowstone National Park. Finally, Jim Deakins will share a powerful gift given by the Blackfoot medicine warrior Red Eagle. So come on along and join Jim Deakins in the year 1879!

Greg Smith lives in Bozeman, Mont., and was for almost 20 years a Ranger Naturalist and Backcountry Ranger in Glacier National Park. A longtime believer in the power of education, he now works with kids and adults throughout the region in the capacity of storyteller and naturalist/historian. In his spare time, Greg enjoys trail running, backpacking, Nordic skiing, and is especially fond of traveling the world on his bike.
