About this title

From School Library Journal:

YA-- Poor communications, slow supply flow, unfamiliar native Americans, ambitious personalities, and an overall rugged way of life contributed to the lifestyle revealed in this well-researched book about the territory west of the Mississippi in the 1800s. Specifically, the study revolves around the massacre of friendly Cheyenne Indians near the Kansas-Colorado border. The findings not only provide background of the massacre but also introduce such personalities as J. M. Chivington, commander of the U. S. troops that led the charge; Colorado Governor John Evans, who aspired to national office; Major Edward Wynkoop, who unsuccessfully attempted to represent the Indian population of the Colorado territory; and Indian chiefs such as Black Kettle, who struggled to keep peace between his people and the white man. The Indian slaughter is described, yet undue emphasis is not placed upon it; rather, the atmosphere preceding it allows readers to better comprehend the times. Schultz does a fine job illuminating the American West during the 1860s, and he also provides a perspective on the Civil War and Little Big Horn. Extensive notes, a bibliography, and a thorough index conclude this well-written book. --Diane Goheen, Topeka West High School, KS
