This encounter was especially interesting as Floyd used to live in a town where I also lived for many years. Although I hadn’t seen Floyd for over a decade, I instantly recognized him, sat down and started chatting. Back then, I didn’t know anything about him other than his Apache name, Silverfox. Floyd and I talked for over an hour and he offered many interesting stories and dispelled some of the rumours that have been spread regarding his life. He spends a great deal of his time walking and has visited most of the prairie provinces, British Columbia and Ontario. It was great to finally sit down and talk to Floyd and get to know him beyond what people have told me in the past.
