More about the Blackfoot People

Continuing the preview of The Ghost Town, here are a couple of resources for learning about the Blackfoot people. 

First, I updated Appendix N with information about The Old North Trail, a fascinating book.

Second is a link to a video about a modern-day version of the Blackfoot winter count, something that plays a role in The Ghost Town

First Preview of The Ghost Town

 A line in a letter written by the Egyptologist Thomas Douglass Murray, discovered during a recent auction, indicates that the famous death mask of Hatshepsut was meant to be delivered to a man named George H. Wolf in Wilder, Montana. 

Located along the southern bank of the Missouri River, Wilder was a stopping place for steamboats and a crossing point for cattle drives. Now, however, it is nothing more than a ghost town. 


What will the heroes find there?

 Here's another preview of Unfinished Business, the fourth full scenario for Treasure Hunter Adventures and the last one for 2020. It focuses on an auction at a remote English manor house, involving items from the personal collection of a Mr. Douglas Murray.
