Format: Paperback
I am giving this POS one star because zero and below it is not an option. The book is an aggressively pro-white, anti-Indian piece of crap; how any respectable publisher would put this out as any kind of true history is beyond me. As is how the writer managed to get a TEACHING gig at the University. What the book says is basically that every land swindle, act of aggression or simple rotten behaviour of whites toward the tribes was understandable, and every act or word of Native protest against the mistreatment was wrong. I think the writer must have some kind of link to the KKK or something. This really should be pulled from the shelves or at least labeled fiction (racist fiction at that) in the name of truth and fairness. Sorry we wasted our cash on this, will never buy anything written by this idiot again.

This book appears to be the standard for history of the two tribes. Informative and interesting.

This book has a great deal to say about the history of the tribes from the white point of view. It is rough going though since it was actually written in 1958, and the slant of the writing reflects the time. I had to carefully read and separate the opinion and racist, arrogant cast from the text to get the actual history and facts out. There are a great deal of references cited and a few pictures and at least 1 map. Overall a useful book.

I enjoyed this book immensely. The author put a lot of thought & effort into this to create a very easy reading & understandable account of not only Black Hawk but beyond up to today with an interesting comment about athlete Jim Thorpe near the end. The was set out logically & I could follow events as they occurred. I didn't know a great deal about these & other tribes but I do now prompting me to read further on them. I was fascinated by their experiences in Washington etc & appalled about how they were conned & moved about in a relatively short space of time to reservation after reservation. In fairness there was objectivity in that not all whites were necessarily against the Indian. I take my hat off to the Indians' courage & Black Hawk who never lost his dignity. I was moved by it.
