I am thinking of resuming my work on my Sam Steele project. Several people here had supported me in that endeavor and I feel bad that I strayed from it. There are still a few more books I need to read through, notes to take and time spent thinking on what I want it to be before I start writing it. But I feel we all need to remember who Sam Steele was and the good he represented.
Sorry I haven't been updating much lately on my writing. I'm in a period of working through what I want to do going forward. I stopped working on my Sam Steele project after the research was two thirds complete. I may get back to it, or it may be postponed. The world of self-publishing is grossly oversaturated and it's been hard gaining ground. I'll let you all know when I've decided what I want to do going forward.
In light of recent coordinated efforts by Amazon, Google and Apple to remove a great many people whose opinions they don't want heard (and entire platforms like Parler) I will no longer to be doing business with Amazon. I will be removing all my books from Amazon shortly and will begin to consider alternatives for self-publishing.

Treaty Six was an agreement between the Canadian government and the Plains and Woods Cree and other tribe leaders in 1876. Terms included a medicine chest, protection from famine and pestilence, more agricultural implements, and on-reserve education. But it also meant losing the free nomadic lifestyle that these nations were accustomed to. Mistahi-maskwa, commonly known as Big Bear, was a powerful and greatly respected Cree chief who was one of the few leaders who objected to the treaty. Big Bear saw how it forced dependence on the government. In the years which followed, some tribes were suffered from insufficient nutrition. For some, Big Bear’s mistrust was proven right. He played a role in the North-West Rebellion of 1885, in which Sam Steele was ordered to hunt down Big Bear’s force.
