9780615247960: Blood on the Prairie - A Novel of the Sioux Uprising

"Toby Ryker, chief scout of the Sixth Minnesota, is a red-headed, half white-half Chippewa man. Living life to the brim, he would rather ride the prairies than plough them. But his Sioux neighbors, despairing a life of near starvation and broken treaties, rise up like a prairie whirlwind in September 1862. They mercilessly ravage the frontier, killing more than 1,000 settlers on Indian lands in the greatest storm of death rivaled only by the Civil War battles decimating the South. Ryker must remain loyal to the army, aid his Indian kinsman or just stand aside. When the outgunned Sioux surrender, Ryker is left with still one more bitter duty. Somehow he must find words to comfort the sorrowing wives of the 38 warriors who are condemned to hang." True West Magazine - May 2009.,

"Steven M. Ulmen deftly blends elements of the traditional western novel with sound historical research to create a fast-moving and strikingly rich account of one of the West's most overlooked events: the 1862 Sioux Uprising in Minnesota." Johnny D. Boggs, three-time Spur Award winning author of NORTHFIELD and CAMP FORD.

Book Description Paperback. Book Condition: New. 212 pages. WE HONOR ALL VICTIMS OF THE DAKOTA CONFLICTWE FORGIVE THE CRIMES OF OUR ANCESTORSDAKOTA: FORGIVE EVERYBODY EVERYTHINGWE SUPPORT RECONCILIATION EFFORTS BETWEEN CULTURESFEEDBACK APPRECIATED. The Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library in Springfield, Illinois accepted a copy of Blood on the Prairie a Novel of the Sioux Uprising for their archives. President Lincoln was greatly involved in the Dakota Conflict and Sioux hangings. We are honored to have this title included in such distinguished company. On the morning of Monday, August 18th, 1862, as if a volcano filled with lava and blood had suddenly discharged its contents upon the earth, the Sioux massacre burst upon the breast of Minnesota, terrific and unexampled, covering her soil with the blood of her children, and, amid horrors of devastation and death, spreading anguish and consternation on every side. The very hour when, dreaming of Peace and Safety, sudden destruction came. In a week, and mostly within forty-eight hours, 1, 000 persons perished in excruciating pain, 2, 000 more were maimed sufferers from the outrage, and 8, 000 who before were comparatively well-to-do, were thrown, as paupers, on the charity of individuals, or on the bounty of the state. A stream of 30, 000 fugitives rushed down the Minnesota valley, seeking protection int he interior towns of the state, or fleeing to the neighboring states, and even to their New England friends. Not less that 2, 000, 000 worth of property was destroyed within a belt of two hundred and fifty miles, and in ten counties, nothing was left. - Biography of Henry H. Sibley, Commander of the Indian Expedition. 2012 marks the 150th anniversary of the Dakota Conflict of 1862, or Sioux Uprising as it was called. The Dakota Conflict caused the greatest loss of civilian life in an Indian war in U. S. history and culminated in the hanging of 38 Sioux at Mankato MN by Lincolns Union Army, the largest mass execution in U. S. history. We honor the memory of all victims of the Sioux Uprising, forgive the crimes of our ancestors and support efforts of healing and reconciliation between the white and Indian cultures. Reviews: Toby Ryker, chief scout for the Sixth Minnesota, is a red-headed, half white-half Chippewa man. Living life to the brim, he would rather ride the prairies than plow them. But his Sioux neighbors, despairing a life of near starvation and broken treaties, rise up like a prairie whirlwind in September 1862. They mercilessly ravage the frontier, killing more than 1, 000 settlers on Indian lands in the greatest storm of death rivaled only by the Civil War battles decimating the South. Ryker must remain loyal to the Army, aid his Indian kinsman or just stand aside. When the outgunned Sioux surrender, Ryker is left with one more bitter duty. Somehow he must find words to comfort the sorrowing wives of the 38 warriors who are condemned to hang. WILLIAM GARWOOD - TRUE WEST MAGAZINE MAY 2009Steven Ulmen is a master storyteller as evidenced by The Revenge of Little Crow, his highly praised and self-published historical novel of the Great Sioux Uprising in Minnesota that took place in 1862. Now Ulmen has fine-tuned and re-edited that superb novel to make it even better. It has now been enhanced with respect to historical accuracy and published as Blood on the Prairie - A Novel of the Sioux Uprising. A novel of clashing cultures fought out in the closing decades of the 19th century, this is western historical fiction at its best and recommended for personal reading lists and community library collections. MIDWEST BOOK REVIEW - THE FICTION SHELF - DECEMBER 2008Steven M. Ulmen deftly blends elements of the traditional western novel with sound historical research to create a fast-moving and strikingly rich account of one of the Wests most overlooked events: the 1862 Sioux Uprising in Minnesota.
