Bottom edge of page block has very pale spotting. Jerry Potts was born into the lawless West in the Upper Missouri fur trade in 1838. This is his story, one that personifies the turmoil of the frontier in two countries, the clash of two cultures. He was the child of a Scottish father and a Blood mother and given his name, Bear Child, by his Blood tribe, for his bravery and tenacity while still a teenager. In 1847 the North West Mounted Police marched west and found themselves lost and starving near the Canada-U.S. border.
