Eyewitnesses to the Indian Wars, 1865-1890: The Wars for the Pacific Northwest is the second in a planned five-volume series that will tell the saga of the military struggle for the American West in the words of the soldiers, noncombatants, and Native Americans who shaped it. Patterned after the classic Battles and Leaders of the Civil War, the series will represent the most comprehensive work on the Indian Wars in the West yet published. Volume II: The Wars for the Pacific Northwest covers five distinct conflicts and their aftermaths: The Snake-Paiute War and After (1866-72), The Modoc War (1872-73), The Nez Perce Campaign (1877), The Bannock War (1878), and The Sheepeater Campaign (1879). It contains accounts from participants on both sides of the conflict, including George Crook, Charles King, and Nelson A. Miles, as well as Chuslum Moxmox (Yellow Bull), Young Two Moon, and Heinmot Tooyalakekt (Chief Joseph).

About the Author:

Peter Cozzens is a Foreign Service Officer with the U.S. Department of State and the author of several acclaimed books on the Civil War and Western history, including The Civil War in the West (0-252-02236-X) and General John Pope: A Life for the Nation (0-252-02363-3).

From Library Journal:

In this second of his five-volume series of contemporary accounts of the Indian wars (the first being The Struggle for Apacheria), Cozzens a foreign service officer with the U.S. Department of State has carefully selected accounts of the five major wars in the Pacific Northwest from 19th-century periodicals and newspapers that are not widely held and from some manuscript collections, and has placed them so that they provide an overview of each of the wars from cause to conclusion. Thus, articles that provide conflicting views, such as Chief Joseph's and Oliver O. Howard's accounts of the Nez Perc‚ Campaign of 1877, are placed together. Editing has been kept to a minimum and serves mainly to clarify the text and make it more readable. This is a useful addition to collections on the West, the Pacific Northwest, and Native Americans.
