Overview

In Uprising, Dean Urdahl has crafted a story about Minnesota s war within a war in the Minnesota River Valley during the autumn of 1862. His saga is enriched by unfolding . . . on an even broader background beginning with the bloody battle of Shiloh in the spring of 1862 and carrying his main character, Nathan Thomas, from there to Minnesota where he participates in an extraordinary number of adventures during the six-week ethnic earthquake variously known as the Sioux Uprising, the Dakota Conflict, and the Dakota War.

    Great read, and a great way to get familiar with MN and US history

    I originally purchased this book because I grew up in MN near many of the locations in the story and I was curious to read something from a local author. I was completely blown away by how exciting and accessible this book is. Uprising: A Novel has a fantastic story that mixes real history with a thrilling story that pulls you right in immediately and keeps you wanting to read more. If you like civil war era history, especially life on the frontier in a time of uncertainty and conflict then this book is a must read.
