Brigham D. Madsen, author of the Bear River Massacre, says that this book is an important contribution to the history of the west.

The marker in this book for Ash Hollow indicates a victory over the Sioux, when in fact it was a massacre, as all historical documents reveal. Only road signs portray it as such. To perpetuate such inaccuracies is not contributing to history, and Madsen should understand this.

It is unfortunate that readers may take to be factual the contents of this book without researching history further for the truth.
