Captain of the Gray-Horse Troop w/ Direct link technology (A Classic western novel)

by Hamlin Garland
     
 
The Tetong were forced onto worthless land by the government (by the Army, in fact), prohibited from their traditional ways, and are being "civilized" by missionaries and the Indian Agency. There isn't much to hunt, it's too dry to farm, they're too poor to start ranching. But the settlers want even that land, and are actively trying to provoke any kind of Tetong

Overview

The Tetong were forced onto worthless land by the government (by the Army, in fact), prohibited from their traditional ways, and are being "civilized" by missionaries and the Indian Agency. There isn't much to hunt, it's too dry to farm, they're too poor to start ranching. But the settlers want even that land, and are actively trying to provoke any kind of Tetong retaliation as an excuse to exterminate all the vermin. The ranchers send their sheep and cattle onto the reservation to feed, they beat and shoot at protesters, they vandalize Tetong camps and property. The ranchers have the direct ear of the state's senior politicians, the newspapers are outrageously partisan, the settlers venomously racist.
