After years of research, independent history scholar Gregory Michno has created a chronological listing of every significant fight between Indians and the United States Army, as well as better-known Indian battles with civilians. In addition, Michno interprets the data to reveal patterns and draw conclusions, some of which challenge the current orthodoxy among historians, such as the revisionist contention that the "wild" West is a myth. Numerous maps, photogrpahs, and tables supplement the text to enhance the reader's understanding. This detailed study is more than a reference book: it's an illuminating portrayal of a violent era and a compelling examination of the machinations of frontier warfare.
