Read an Excerpt

It is half a century and more since the raids and assaults recorded in this book took place, most of the persons who took active parts in the same have responded to the last earthly call, and what information we get first handed must of necessity be obtained now or never. I have often querried; why should those conditions be forgotten, and why has so little interest been taken in keeping memorandas and records of events and conditions of those early and trying times. I have written several times over much of the information I have gathered in order to make corrections and supply additional information. I have been more than twenty years compiling this history, and have not left a stone unturned in my endeavors to obtain correct data on all the important events which properly belong to this history.

    Oldest Firsthand Account of the Black Hawk War in Utah

    Truly a classic account of the human injustices between the Mormons and the Ute Indian. By the time the war with the Indians had started in 1865, Black Hawk and Tabiona had became friends of Peter's as he was invited to their camps on numerous occasions. Peter found himself between two cultures as he was keenly aware of, and sometimes witness to, the injustices that surrounded him and the people he loved. His unique perspective underscored his motivation to write his classic history book. He reveals in great detail the struggle for survival, the failed attempts to reconcile differences in an agreeable way, and the brutal acts of violent behavior between the whites and the Indian. Peter methodically selected and compiled firsthand accounts that he felt best represented the moral ambiguities, stratagem, and hypocritical respect toward the Native people.

    Salt Lake Tribune 12/15/02 "Few histories are as valuable....

    Most recently an artical in the Salt Lake Tribune by Historian and Author Will Bagley, Mr. Bagley wrote, "Thanks to organizations such as the Sons And Daughters Of The Utah Pioneers, we have thousands of diaries and autobiographies in which the people who lived Utah's history tell us what they saw and felt. Few of these histories are as valuable as a Danish imagrant's account of Utah's Indian wars. Peter Gottfredson spent 37 years compiling a unique history of some of the darkest episodes in our past, Indian Depredations In Utah. "Depredations discribes Utah's longest and most brutal Indian conflict, the Black Hawk War that raged from 1865 to 1872."
