Synopsis: The varied and colorful career of Charles Wesley Allen (1851-1942) took him throughout the northern Plains during an exceptionally turbulent era in its history. He was at the Red Cloud Agency when Red Cloud attempted to prevent the raising of the American flag and the Lakota nearly took over the agency. Allen also visited Deadwood at the height of the Black Hills gold rush, helped build the first government agency on the Pine Ridge reservation, and reported on the Lakota Ghost Dance. Allen happened to be walking through the Indian camp at Wounded Knee when shots rang out on December 29, 1890, and his is arguably the best of all the eyewitness accounts of that tragedy. This is Allen's previously unpublished vivid account of the years he described as "the most exciting chapter of my life." As much the chronicle of the passing of an era as a personal narrative, its simple, direct, and often moving prose captures the injustices, gritty details, and relentless energy of a period of dramatic change in the West.
About the Author: From Fort Laramie to Wounded Knee is Charles W. Allen's (1851–1942) account of life on the northern Plains during an exceptionally turbulent era in its history. Richard E. Jensen is senior research anthropologist at the Nebraska State Historical Society and the editor of Happy As a Big Sunflower: Adventures in the West, 1876-1880, by Rolf Johnson (Nebraska 2000).
