A chronicling of the Indian wars fought between 1861 and 1865. While many know of the major events of the Civil War, few realize there were also Indian wars fought during that period of strife. This account covers those conflicts, from a prewar incident that sparked an Apache war in Arizona to the Navajo war in New Mexico, the Sioux uprising in Minnesota, and the struggle of the Plains Indians in Texas, Colorado, Kansas, Nebraska, and the Dakotas. Divided by chapters into the five years of the Civil War, this book reveals how the war impacted everyone in America, including Indians on the frontier.

From the Back Cover:

"With several other books to his credit on related Kansas and Western topics, Roy Bird is an excellent fit for Pelican's series of concise, popular histories of the Civil War. His focus is the war in the West during the early 1860s, while the nation's attentions were transfixed on the East. Bird's narrative takes us throughout the trans-Mississippi West to capture some of the most telling incidents of Civil War-era combat and atrocities. Civil War and the Indian Wars is a well-written chronicle that should appeal to a popular audience more familiar with the classic warfare between the Blue and the Gray back East."
--Virgil Dean, editor, Kansas History: A Journal of the Central Plains

"Bird brings us an absorbing but often ignored piece of history, one inextricably intertwined with both the saga of the American Indians and the Civil War itself. His account of the Indians' struggle against the encroachment and cruelty of the whites portrays a complex mix of factors, with some tribes siding with the North or South, some seeing the white man's war as an opportunity to attack. Bird has considerable sympathy with the plight of the Indians, doesn't flinch from reporting the savagery on both sides, and writes a worthwhile account."
--Jerri Garretson, publisher, Ravenstone Press
