Overview

This volume contains a fascinating and detailed history of the Sioux Plains Indians. The author spent five years among the Sioux Indians, as part of his intense research for a biography of Sitting Bull. The resultant text constitutes a comprehensive chronology of key events during their conflict with the American authorities, compiled from statements of Indian eye-witnesses. This book will appeal to those with an interest in the Sioux Indians, and would make for a worthy addition to collections of related literature. The chapters include: “Indian Warfare”, “An Officer’s Tribute to the Plains Indians”, “Comparative Casualties as Between U.S. Troops and Indians During the Sioux Campaigns”, “Note on the Ways of Warriors”, “Problems of Peace”, “Notes on Individuals”, etcetera. Many vintage texts such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive, and it is with this in mind that we are republishing this book now, in an affordable, high-quality, modern edition. It comes complete with a specially commissioned biography of the author.
