Michael Blake's business partner, Daniel Ostroff, says the 69-year-old died Saturday in Tucson, Arizona, after a long battle with cancer.

Blake wrote the novel "Dances With Wolves" at the urging of his longtime friend, actor Kevin Costner. The novel was fairly unsuccessful but became a hit film after Costner asked Blake to adapt it into a movie.
