Madsen has done the landmark book for western history afficionados, as well as for historians who want to delve into documentation on the Bear River Massacre.
His impeccable research, with enough depth for scholars,seemingly has a view towards the eye of the average reader as well.
Anyone who wants a feel for this tragic chapter in Native History, with plenty of heavily footnoted documentation, will find Madsens book a great addition to their research library.
I recommend it highly!

The Bear River massacre in Idaho of January 1863 in which US soldiers massacred over 200 Shoshone Indians is not as well remembered as Little Bighorn, the Nez Perce war or even the Sand Creek Massacre. maybe because this occurred during the height of the American Civil war. this is a well written and at times emotional book. highly suggested.

I am the ggGrandson of Preston Thomas, the first LDS Bishop of Franklin. I have been studing the massacre for some time now, of course, with emphasis on what the pioneer's role was in the whole ordeal.
This book is very well done and is basically "the bible" by which any other book's subject matter is drawn from.
It very well brings out the clash of cultures that was bound to happen sooner than later.

This is a great book on the tragedy that occurred near the Bear River in Idaho. It is an easy book to read and makes you think about what happened there that day. If you are a western history buff, this is one book you should read.
