Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
In the pages of American history perhaps no chapter is darker than that of the many conflicts encompassed in the Indian Wars. Over a period of centuries, American citizens in the form of settlers, soldiers, railway men, and explorers came into contact with the indigenous Native-American population. Almost invariably, this contact resulted in violence and the eventual destruction of the lifestyles of the native tribes. Time and again the encroachment of primarily white settlers into Indian lands led to warfare and the displacement of the original residents. In some instances, such as at the Little Bighorn River in 1876, the Native-Americans were able to emerge victorious in battle. However, these tactical victories could not forestall the strategic defeat of virtually every Native-American tribe that stood in the way of westward expansion. The sad story of the American Indian Wars is presented in this work of history. Author Edward F. Dolan, who specializes in military history, presents readers with an excellent overview of a war that, in reality, was a long term sequence of campaigns stretching across a vast area. Dolan offers a workable outline of this complex struggle while also including some well developed character studies of leading light participants such as Geronimo, Cochise, and Sitting Bull. In addition numerous contemporary drawings and illustrations add to the text to provide younger readers with a fine introduction to an important element of American history. 2003, Millbrook Press, Ages 10 up.
