Buffalo War: The History of the Red River Indian Uprising of 1874by James L. Haley
The U.S. Army battles three powerful Indian tribes-the Comanches, Kiowas, and Southern Cheyennes-in the Texas Panhandle.
" Scores of scholars have grappled with one or more of the contradictory elements of the Red River War of 1874, but only Haley has succeeded. ... At least a half-dozen professional historians may honestly remark upon reading Haley's book that they wish they had written it." -Journal of American History
"A poignant, sweeping canvas of a long forgotten conflict ... colorful, exciting, detailed. Students of the West will relish it."-Hartford Times
"The Buffalo War is excellent history. Meticulously researched and well written, it could well stand as the definitive work in this field. Haley writes with a pleasing and perceptive style." -Montana
