Overview

Grounded in meticulous research and written with an uncanny understanding of the military and of American Indian culture, Blake offers soulful profiles of the participants, both Indian and cavalry. Indian Yell is filled with accounts of harrowing sacrifice and tragic misdeeds of real people-Blake tells of their lives and loves, their bravery, and their shortcomings in a way that lends a new perspective on America's greatest insurgency. Some of the stories are well documented in the annals of history, while others are more abscure. Large or small, Blake weaves them together to show that bitter memories of this war still haunt the American West. These are the struggles that initiated the end of one way of life and the beginning of another; this struggle must not be forgotten.
