About this title

Synopsis:

From primary sources collected over some thirty years, both textual and photographic, Wilbur S. Nye tells the story of the military subjugation of the Plains Indians and their removal to reservations in Indian Territory.

Complementing the text, which covers a segment of American history that has heretofore been told chiefly in fragments, are the superb photographs of William S. Soule. As fine a craftsman as Mathew Brady, Soule made many photographs of the aboriginal red men. These pictures, showing exactly how the Indian looked, what they wore, and how they lived, are published here in a relatively complete collection (some near duplicates are omitted) for the first time.

About the Author:

Captain W. S. Nye (more recently Major W. S. Nye, U.S.A) was born in Canton, Ohio. As a boy he moved with his parents to California and can remember when Hollywood was a barley field. Upon the entrance of the United States into the World War, he enlisted in the ambulance service. Soon, however, he received an appointment to West Point where he was graduated in 1920. Major Nye has seen service at Camp Knox, Kentucky; Camp Lewis, Washington; Schofield Barracks, Hawaii; Fort Bragg, North Carolina; Fort Sill, Oklahoma; and in Washington, D.C. He was stationed at Fort Sill in 1933, as a student in the advanced course of the Field Artillery School, when he began the researches in Indian history that led to the writing of Carbine and Lance.

A frequent contributor to the military journals and the author of many featured articles on western history, he is now editor of The Field Artillery Journal.
