Long before white traders and missionairies int he Pacific Northwest discovered them, the Kalispel Indians had evolved their simple, sustaining way of life in the forests and on the rivers and lakes. Colorfully related in this work are the Kalispel travels following the animals that provided food and skins for clothing and shelter. The indians fished with spears or from weirs or their ingenious sturgeon nosed canoes, cover the great distances from the Columbia River to Flathead Lake and all the area between. They welcomed Jesuit missionaries and absorbed the new faith, always ready to share their knowledge of the land with the white man.
