Expansion! The history of the United States might well be summed up in that single word. The Indian Wars of the American West were a continuation of the struggle that began with the arrival of the first Europeans, and escalated as they advanced across the Appalachians before American independence had been won.
This history of the Indian Wars of the Trans-Mississippi begins with the earliest clashes between Native Americans and Anglo-European settlers. The author provides a comprehensive narrative of the conflict in eight parts, covering eight geographical regions--the Pacific Northwest; California and Nevada; New Mexico, the Central Plains, the Southern Plains; Iowa, Minnesota and the Northern Plains; the Intermountain West, and the Desert Southwest--with an epilogue on Wounded Knee.

Review:

"Best American Indian History, Indian Wars"--True West; "recommend.... Civil War buffs will get a kick out of seeing the pre- and post-Civil War careers of some great Union and Confederate officers"--Civil War News; "the chronological timeline is very valuable and the book has a good index and a solid list of recommended readings. Full of interesting stories about individuals and events and the author's candid commentary, the book is engaging and a useful reference source." --American Reference Books Annual

"A comprehensive examination of the wars between European immigrants and indigenous peoples throughout the Western United States between 1846 and 1890." --ProtoView

"A comprehensive narrative...fill[s] a void by presenting a new inclusive study of the Western Indian Wars, one that enables readers to arrive at a fresh and more enlightened view of these terrible conflicts and emerge with a deeper understanding of how they developed and the lamentable consequences that resulted...tells what happened; what brought on the wars, and how they were prosecuted...Keenan has filled the need for an all-encompassing single volume history of the Western Indian wars...brings together the most recent works in the field, and from them distills a comprehensive, readable narrative, historically accurate, yet without the minutiae found in more detailed studies of individual campaigns and battles." --SirReadaLot.org
