In the Old West, the beginnings of the machine age encountered a last vestige of the stone age. The white man was embarking upon the great industrial era; the red man still used the flint arrowhead. There was little common ground between these two cultures. To the white man, land was a commodity which could be bought and sold; to the red man, the earth belonged to everyone; that a person could claim to own a piece of it was repugnant to him. The Indians were doomed in the wars which inevitably followed this clash of cultures. The white man possessed the repeating rifle, the telegraph and the railroad. The Machine Age remorselessly engulfed the wilderness. But not without a fight. THE INDIANS WARS OF THE WEST is the record of that struggle. Here you will meet Crazy Horse, Sitting Bull, Chief joseph and many other great leaders of the Indian nations as well as their adversaries who included General George Crook, General Alfred Terry and General George A. Custer. here you will also find the horrifying record of the white man's treatment of the Indian. In the name of "Civilization" the white man shot down defenseless men, women and children at places like Camp Grant, Sand Creek and Wounded Knee; fed strychnine to Indian warriors; set whole villages of people out naked to freeze in the Montana winter and confined thousands in what amounted to concentration camps. THE INDIAN WARS OF THE WEST captures a time when the issue of supremacy was decided by bullets and arrows. It is the record of a terrible and bloody struggle. It is also the record of the spirit of those days, the action, the suffering, the heroism and the despair.
