French-Indian Families in America's West
In the 1800's five related French families settled in St Louis, Missouri. Three men from these families: Lessert, Chatillon and Roy, entered into the fur trade with another Frenchman by the name of Chouteau. Lessert and Chatillon went into Sioux country and married into the Oglala Sioux tribe. This is a story of their experiences.
