Editorial Reviews


"... Hoig weaves a web of treaty councils starting out in the beginning as diplomacy between equals but quickly digressing into a flawed system that usually resulted in broken promises and military intervention. ... [A]n important contribution to understanding both sides of the diplomatic process." -- Journal of the West

"... the uniqueness of Hoig's narrative is its focus on peacemaking, rather than conflict: White Man's Paper Trail is a kind of antihistory of the Indian Wars. ...offers a convenient chronological account that will be especially useful for students who are just beginning to engage with this historical era." -- Raymond J. DeMallie Jr., The Journal of American History, June 2007

"...the narrative confronts vexing issues such as racism and Indian treaties, the treachery of many government negotiators, and the role that treaties played in diminishing the power and status of native leaders." -- James Carroll, Kansas History

"Hoig, a renowned scholar of journalism and American Indian history...provides a unique `interrelated overview' of the numerous diplomatic discussions and agreements these tribes had with U.S. and Texas government officials." -- Gerald Betty, East Texas Historical Association, Spring 2007

"Instead of giving us another rendition of how Euro-Americans stole the land, the resources, and the livelihood of American Indian peoples, [Hoig] presents a narrative account of how American Indian peoples attempted to protect their lifeways through diplomacy and creative means. . . . Any Native American library would be incomplete without this book..." -- H-AmIndian, H-Net Reviews
