Review

"A novel of clashing cultures fought out in the closing decades of the 19th century, this is western historical fiction at its best and recommended for personal reading lists and community library collections." - Midwest Book Review

The book tells a lot of us what we already know. The Sioux tribe took a real kick in the head after this war with the mass hanging. Should have been dealt with differently although many of the white settlers suffered terribly.
also. It only proved that,after a war,neither side comes out healthy and happy.

Format: Paperback
Steven Ulmen is a master storyteller as evidenced by "The Revenge of Little Crow", his highly praised and self-published historical novel of the Great Sioux Uprising in Minnesota that took place in 1882. Now Ulmen has fine-tuned and re-edited that superb novel to make it even better. It has now been enhanced with respect to historical accuracy and published as "Blood On The Prairie: A Novel Of The Sioux Uprising". A novel of clashing cultures fought out in the closing decades of the 19th century, this is western historical fiction at its best and recommended for personal reading lists and community library collections.

Format: Paperback
In 1965-66 the Minnesota State University at Mankato was called Mankato State College. There were a total of five Indian (Native American) students. These students wished to form a campus club for mutual support as the Indian dropout rate at MSC was almost 100 percent. Professor Glen Just from the Sociology Department became their advisor and mentor. All of these students graduated with either a bachelor or master's degree. Native students experienced Mankato as an unfriendly town and campus in the 1960s and were desirous of creating a balanced history of how the area was colonized by Western immigrants.

The most obvious offensive cultural image was the monument commemorating America's largest mass hanging, the hanging of 38 American Indian warriors who fought during the uprising of 1862. Indians were starving because Indian agents were corrupt and routinely stole government goods designated for the tribes and used the profits to make themselves rich. A local trader was not only corrupt but callous and he became the spark that ignited the fire of revolt. It is worth noting that by 1965 when the Indian campus club was formed that not one of over 300 treaties and agreements with native people was ever kept by the American government. Students were aware of this fact, their own history in Wisconsin, Minnesota, South Dakota and Nebraska, their home states, and wished to bring some of these facts into public awareness.

Indian students set up a speaker's bureau on campus and made themselves available throughout Southern Minnesota and the Twin City Metro Area as speakers. When a new program was created on the MSU campus in the 1970's to help Minnesota teachers become culturally sensitive to the areas ethnic diversity and history, these students led the outreach as speakers.

This book is very well written. Once I opened it I couldn't put it down. I'm not the fastest reader but I sat there and read this book for hours because I couldn't put it down. The author really does a good job and setting the scenes and makes you feel like you are there. Of course you have to be interested in the Sioux uprising in the first place. Great read!

This book might have contained a lot of historical information, but I couldn't get past all the errors and inaccuracies. A lot of the terminology was NOT appropriate to this time period. When one of the main characters is telling a joke, it starts out as a joke about Hans & Hannah, but before he finishes telling it the names have become Ole & Lena. What's up with that????
