About the Author:

Dennis C. Shultz is an environmental photographer living and working in Rockport, Maine. Scott Dickerson is the Executive Director of Coastal Mountains Land Trust and Coordinator of the Ducktrap Coalition, which he helped found in 1995.

From Kirkus Reviews:

Another sad chapter in the history of the American West sharply and colorfully rendered by Schultz in a fitting successor to his vivid Month of the Freezing Moon (1990). The Sand Creek massacre in Colorado in 1864, the subject of Schultz's previous book, is closely linked to the events described here in that the violent, weeklong uprising in Minnesota in August 1862 placed the whole western frontier on edge. Tricked and betrayed by broken treaties, cheated incessantly by traders, and brought to the brink of starvation by delays in dispensing the government's annuity payments, the Santee Sioux had finally had enough. The flash point was reached over hens' eggs, so legend has it, when warriors mocked as cowards after refusing to steal the eggs shot the hens' owner, his wife, and friends in cold blood. Faced with certain reprisals from whites, the most respected Sioux leader, Little Crow, sided with his war chiefs and the rampage began in earnest. Hundreds of isolated settlers in the area died, with only occasional prisoners taken, while massive attacks took place against the nearby Army garrison and the prosperous town of New Ulm. Even with superior numbers, these assaults failed, however, leaving many warriors dead and the rest disheartened. The Army quickly rounded up all the Sioux to be found (Little Crow's dwindling band escaped to Canada, but he later returned and was killed), sentencing hundreds to death in military court without allowing them a defense. President Lincoln reduced the number of condemned to 38, who were duly hung, but the conflict continued for decades as other tribes took up the fight. Skillfully interwoven from personal and local histories and contemporary accounts--an intimate view of desperation and bloodshed on the Great Plains that's as poignant as it is tragic. (Eight pages of illustrations.) -- Copyright ©1992, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.

Book Description St Martin's Press, United States, 2000. Paperback. Condition: New. Reprint. Language: English. Brand new Book. December 26, 1862. On the day after Christmas, in Mankato, Minnesota, thirty-eight Sioux Indians were hanged on the order of President Lincoln. It stands today as the greatest mass execution in the history of the United States. In Over the Earth I Come, Duane Schultz brilliantly retells one of America's most violent and bloody events--the Great Sioux Uprisings of 1862. In less than one week in August, the Sioux went on a rampage throughout Minnesota that left hundreds of settlers dead. Whole families were burned alive in their farmhouses. Children were nailed to barn doors, girls raped by a dozen braves and hacked to pieces, babies dismembered in front of their horrified mothers. Nearly forty thousand settlers became refugees, and for one brief moment in time, the Sioux people were restored to their ancestral land and reclaimed their pride and dignity. In this well-researched and insightful narrative, Duane Schultz uncovers the events and injustices that sparked this violent uprising. The Sioux of Minnesota, perceived as a peaceful tribe, harbored intense resentment over the lands appropriated by the whites, the disappearance of the buffalo, broken treaties, and the lies and deceptions of the government and its representatives. In the summer of 1862, delayed annuity payments from land treaties and the refusal of traders to release food to starving Indians sparked the first of a series of wars between Indians and whites. Over the Earth I Come recounts a part of American history that should never be forgotten. Seller Inventory # APC9780312093600
