9780972983051: The Cayuse War (The Early Indian Wars of Oregon, Volume One) (The Early Indian Wars of Oregon, Volume One)

The Cayuse Was is one of the finest books available on the first of the Indian Wars in Oregon. Out of print for over a century, it is at last available again in a new edition. The book is loved by scholars for its meticulous details and references, but, because it was written by an acclaimed novelist and poet, is also enjoyable for the armchair historian. The Cayuse War was instigated by the massacre of fourteen white men and women by the Cayuse Indians, who were afraid that one of the whites, Dr. Whitman, was intentionally infecting the Cayuses with measles. Rich in historical details about the life of the white settlers and the activities of several Native American tribes, as well as a behind-the-scenes look at the difficulties of preparing for war, The Cayuse War is an invaluable document in the history of Oregon. Also included is a facsimile of the Muster Rolls of the soldiers and attaches who served in the Cayuse Indian War.
