Item Description: Forgotten Books, United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 229 x 152 mm. Language: English Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from Speech of Hon. Rudolph Kleberg, of Texas in the House of Representatives: Saturday, January 22, 1898 The House being in Committee of the Whole on the state of the Union, and having under consideration the bill (H. R. 6896) making appropriations for the current and contingent expenses of the Indian Department and for fulfilling treaty stipulations with various Indian tribes for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1899, and for other purposes - The Chairman. The Clerk will report the amendment for information. The amendment was read, as follows: Strike out lines 3,4,5,6, and 7, page 57, and insert the following: That in the transportation of all supplies furnished by the United States Government to the various Indian tribes in the United States, and transported for that purpose from one State or Territory into another State or Territory, the interstate Commerce Commission shall, upon the application of the Secretary of the Interior, after reasonable notice to all roads affected thereby, prescribe such maximum rates of freight charges as shall, in the judgment of the commission, be fair and reasonable; which rates, when so fixed, shall be binding upon all railroads and connecting lines engaged in the transportation of like or similar freights: and any railroad or connecting line refusing to receive and transport such freight shall forfeit to the United States the sum of $5,000 for each day they shall so refuse to receive and transport the same, to be recovered upon the suit of the United States in any court having jurisdiction. Mr. Sherman. I do not understand that the gentleman offers that amendment now. Mr. Little. Oh, certainly not. That is an amendment I propose to offer at the proper time. Mr. Kleberg. I thank the gentleman from Arkansas [Mr. Little] for his kindness. I wish to make some general observations in regard to what he has said as to an amendment which he will offer at the proper time. I cordially agree with him that the amendment should be ingrafted on the bill before its passage, because it is certainly not right that this Government should pay charges for freight out of all reason to some privileged railroad corporations. It seems from this statement and from the letter which has been read before the committee that it is true that these railroad companies have combined, or, in other words, pooled their issues, and are charging the Government rates entirely out of proportion with the economical administration of the Government and the expenditure of the Government money.

The papers in this volume deals with-four major themes: Ethnicity and cultural identity of tribes; Endangerment of indigenous languages of tribes ; Issues and perspectives of tribal development in multiple cultural contexts; and Impact of globalization on livelihood systems and occupational patterns of tribes in India. Understanding the dynamics of development among the tribes and communities with analogous socio-cultural and techno-economic dispositions require anthropological approach. Responsible national and regional collaboration of the agencies involved and ensuring informed participation of the communities and peoples concerned in developmental works can alleviate the deprivations as discussed in the presentations.

Item Description: A Plus Printing Co., Tucson, Arizona. Spiral/Comb. Book Condition: New. No Jacket. Limited Edition Reprint. 8.5" x 11". Tales of Kansas in the Civil War: The Fifth, Sixth and Ninth Cavalry Regiments Compiled from excerpts from various volumes of the Kansas State Historical Society, this NEW spiral-bound 75 page booklet is photocopied on 8.5" x 11" 60# paper. The front cover is protected by a vinyl sheet. CONTENTS "Sixth Kansas Cavalry and Its Commander" -- The commander referred to by the author, Charles E. Cory, was Lieutenant Colonel Lewis R. Jewell. The Sixth Kansas Cavalry was "different from most regiments of the United States army." Most rode their own horses, many wore civilian clothes and they were the "finest foragers that ever went to war since the days of vandals." Among the incidents related are "The Burning of Fort Scott -- Which Didn't Happen," an incidental (but friendly) meeting with Quantrill, and the Battle of Cane Hill including a sketch of the battleground. (Vol. XI 1909-1911) "A Kansas Soldier's Escape from Camp Ford, Texas" -- George W. Martin writes the story of Capt Robert Henderson, Company G, Sixth Kansas volunteer cavalry, who was captured by Confederates and sent to Camp Ford. He and two companions met numerous obstacles as they tried to make their way back to Union lines. (Vol. VIII 1903-1904) "Campaigning in the Army of the Frontier" -- Albert Robinson Greene of Company A, Ninth Kansas Cavalry, gives a colorful account of his Civil War adventures -- falling asleep his first night on guard duty, eating milk and donuts, an impromptu horse race, and even getting in some fighting now and then. He wrote from memory, aided by a diary he kept during part of his service. Here's a sample of his writing: On the 28th of November our advance guard was fired on while crossing Turkey creek, a few miles north of Neosho, Mo. We had one man badly wounded, and had no means of knowing whether the guerrillas suffered or not, as they were in a safe place and got away after a few shots at them. The next day we reached Neosho, and the officers got up a dance in the office of the Herald newspaper. The "sesesh" ladies didn't seem at all averse to having "Federals" for partners, and the fun was fast and furious until a late hour. (Vol. XIV 1915-1918) "Massacre of Confederates by Osage Indians" -- This article, by W.L. Bartles, a member of Company G, Ninth Kansas, tells of a bloody incident that occurred in the area of Humboldt. The Civil War in the west sometimes involved Indian nations. In the Humboldt area, the Osage tribe sided with the Unionists, while the Cherokees supported the Confederacy. (Vol. VIII 1903-1904) "An (Unrecorded) Incident of the War, 1862" -- "In the summer of 1862, a detachment of the Fifth Kansas cavalry of less than 200 men accomplished one of the most perilous feats of the civil war, and of which little is known except by those now living who participated therein."Thus begins a tale by John Francis, a follower of John Brown, and a member of Company D, Fifth Kansas regiment. (Vol. VII 1901-1902). Bookseller Inventory # 000473

Item Description: University of Oklahoma Press, United States, 1997. Paperback. Book Condition: New. New edition. 216 x 150 mm. Language: English Brand New Book. In A Texas Frontier: The Clear Fork Country and Fort Griffin, 1849-1887. Ty Cashion surveys the formative development of northwest Texas where the Clear Fork of the Brazos cuts a path between the timbered region and the treeless plains beyond. Despite the unfamiliar and often harsh environment, the first pioneers - mainly southern stock raisers - persisted through conflicts with Plains Indians, the Civil War, Reconstruction, outlawry, rapid settlement, and diversification to form a ranching-based social and economic way of life. The process turned a largely southern people into westerners. Others helped shape the history of the Clear Fork country as well. Notable among them were Anglo men and women - some of them earnest settlers, others unscrupulous opportunists - who followed the first pioneers; Indians of various tribes who claimed the land as their own or who were forcibly settled there by the white government; and African Americans, both former slaves and buffalo soldiers and their families, who remained on the land after their terms of enlistment expired. A dominant theme in Cashion s depiction of the Clear Fork country is that from its earliest days boom-and-bust cycles have characterized the region as a result of the land s fickle nature, the policies of various governments, and the business decisions of men as far away as the East Coast. An even more prominent theme is that a strain of violence touched almost every aspect of life. Soldiers and Indians, cowboys and buffalo hunters, vigilantes and outlaws provide a colorful backdrop for this history. Yet Cashion forsakes the romantic image of gunslingers and a casual acceptance of violence by portraying the more prosaic peopleand events in which a larger regional story unfolds.

Item Description: Forgotten Books, United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 229 x 152 mm. Language: English Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from Life Among the Apaches Those who may favor the succeeding pages with their perusal, must not expect any attempt at fine writing or glowing description. The author s intention is, to furnish a plain, unvarnished tale of actual occurrences and facts illustrative of the various tribes of Indians occupying that vast region which extends from the Colorado river on the west, to the settlements of Texas on the east, and from Taos in New Mexico to Durango in the Mexican Republic. In the front rank of the tribes, occupying the region included within the limits mentioned, stands the great Apache race, and next are the Comanches. The former of these will engage most of the author s attention for very many and obvious reasons. It is believed that the book will contain a large amount of valuable information, to be derived from no other source extant, and it will be the author s endeavor to place it before his readers in a manner which will engage their attention. Nothing not strictly true will be admitted into its pages, and if some of the incidents narrated be found of a thrilling character, the reader will experience satisfaction in knowing that they are not the results of imaginative picturing. Whenever a personal adventure is narrated, it will be found to illustrate some particular phase of character; none are recounted which do not convey information.
