James was the epitome of the self-made American, being born of commoner family in Lincolnshire and emigrating to America in 1881. He suffered from health problems most of his early life, then discovered the health benefits of the Southwest. For 30 years he travelled, wrote and learned from his tribal friends. It has been said that the Native peoples of the Southwest had no more supportive and sympathetic friend than James.
