Stackpole is proud to introduce the Frontier Classics, a new series that aims to resurrect long out-of-print gems of frontier history. Antiquarian and rare book dealers have previously been the only source for these books, providing first editions for premium prices. Now, these books are available in affordable, quality paperback editions, with new historical introductions written by a leading expert in the field. J. P. Dunn's "Massacres of the Mountains" has been called the best single work on the Indian Wars of the American West. Dunn's sympathy for, and understanding of, the plight of the Native American was remarkable for his day. Eminent Western historian Dan Thrapp said of the book, "Its remarkable accuracy, thoroughness of coverage, scope, and sound judgment displayed have enabled it to retain its place as a cornerstone in the history of Indian-white conflicts."

About the Author:

Daniel Dary is the author of nine books on the West, including The Santa Fe Trail. He is the recipient of a Cowboy Hall of Fame Wrangler Award, two Western Writers of America Spur Awards, and the Westerners International Best Nonfiction Book Award.

From Library Journal:

Stackpole is using Dunn's 1886 history of the Indian wars of the American West to launch its "Frontier Classics" series. The books are facsimiles of the originals, with new front matter such as scholarly introductions. This volume, for instance, features a new intro by Western historian David Dary. Many of the titles to be covered have long been available only through rare book dealers for big bucks, so libraries specializing in Western history should keep an eye on this line.
