A history of the 1874 Red River War, called the final campaign of whites versus the Southern Plains Indians. Locates the roots of Indian unrest in the whites' wholesale slaughter of the buffalo, which destroyed the Indians' economy and way of life. Discusses the internal conflicts between factions on each side of the larger conflict: between pro-war and pro-peace Indian factions, and between the US Army and the Indian Bureau for control of governmental policy. Originally published in 1976. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.

The situation of the South Plains Indians in 1874 was the product of all, understood, even though that history had left them impoverished and materially wretched, dominated by another race of men whom they had been exposed for only a few decades, and gnawed by a horrible intuition that their entire social structure was doomed, and the days of their tribes, numbered.
