9780811729079: Scalp Dance: Indian Warfare on the High Plains, 1865-1879

Some of the most savage war in world history was waged on the American Plains from 1865 to 1879. As settlers moved west following the Civil War, they found powerful Indian tribes barring the way. When the U.S. Army intervened, a bloody and prolonged conflict ensued.

Drawing heavily from diaries, letters, and memoirs from American Plains settlers, historian Thomas Goodrich weaves a spellbinding tale of life and death on the prairie, told in the timeless words of the participants themselves. Scalp Dance is a powerful, unforgettable epic that shatters modern myths. Within its pages, the reader will find a truthful account of Indian warfare as it occurred.

About the Author:

Thomas Goodrich is a professional writer whose focus is the American West. He is a native Kansan and lives near Topeka.

From Library Journal:

Goodrich, whose previous books, Black Flag (LJ 2/15/95) and Bloody Dawn (LJ 1/1/91), told of Civil War-era Kansas, weaves various firsthand narratives into this account focusing on two episodes of warfare against the Indians: campaigns in Kansas during 1867-68, and the Sioux War of 1876-77. Fully a third of the book is concerned with Custer's campaigns in Kansas and Montana. Goodrich has produced a smooth, flowing story, but the viewpoint is that of the settler and soldier on the frontier. The voice of the Indian explaining why he went to war is not heard. Serious collections on the West will already have the original works from which this book is drawn. Others may wish to consider this for purchase.?Stephen H. Peters, Northern Michigan Univ.
