Overview

Greed, misunderstanding, and resentment characterized the relationship between early white settlers moving west and the Native American peoples of the Great Plains. As whites delved further into western territory, the U.S. government attempted to quell Indians' fears by signing treaties guaranteeing the rights and freedoms of various Native groups. The settlers and the U.S. Army, however, eventually broke almost every treaty. The series of bloody confrontations that ensued was known as the Plains Indian Wars. A fast-moving narrative, written in lively language and containing a wealth of historical detail. Plains Indian Wars, Revised Edition tells a story that will fascinate young readers.

Chelsea House is proud to announce the updating and revision of its critically acclaimed America At War series. Features of this revised edition include the addition of color images and maps throughout, as well as extra sidebars and a new chapter on weapons and tactics used in the conduct of each war.
