Tough Trip Through Paradise: Musselshell River
It was in the fall of 1878 before the Priest came to the Cree buffalo camp on the Musselshell River, nearly one day’s ride from the Pend d’Oreille camp…his name was Father Landre. He followed the Cree buffalo camps in Canada and lived in the tepees with them like an Injun…and said Mass and preached to them in the Cree language. His church was a large one, the vaults of heaven and generally on a creek bank under a tree. His altar stood there, the tail end of a Red River cart. It was some sight to see, on the banks of the Musselshell, in that Injun camp, on that day when In-who-lise and I were married. (260)
