About this title:

Synopsis: Rare, First-Hand Accounts from Newspaper Correspondents Describing the Course of America's Largest Indian War, Compiled and Edited for the First Time in One Volume

(There are more reviews beneath the Product Details below).

"No one commands better the story of the Great Sioux War of 1876-1877 as presented in the nation's newspapers than does Marc Abrams. Here is Abrams's story of America's greatest Indian war woven from those timely reports, augmented with insightful introductions and annotations. Abrams has produced a significant addition to the historiography of this endlessly fascinating struggle and its colorful personalities." -- Paul L. Hedren, author of After Custer: Loss and Transformation in Sioux Country

"Marc Abrams has provided an invaluable service to both scholars and lay readers in compiling this treasure trove of primary information. Like the correspondents he has come to know through his research, Marc has done the hard work; we need only read in comfort and benefit from his efforts." -- Douglas W. Ellison, author of Sole Survivor: An Examination of the Frank Finkel Narrative

"[Marc] Abrams presents a fascinating compilation of military dispatches, first-hand accounts, and newspaper articles covering the conflict. Combined with his incisive comments, they present an invaluable picture of the struggle between peoples fighting to preserve their traditional lifestyles against the inexorable advance of 'civilization.' There are wonderfully revealing tidbits of information [throughout the narrative]." -- Booklist Online

"Marc Abrams's book is an exciting and innovative approach that brings immediacy to the campaigns of Custer, Crook, and Miles, and teems with fascinating new detail. Sioux War Dispatches not only offers a gripping contemporary window into those times, it fills an important reference need as well." -- Jerome A. Greene, author of Stricken Field: The Little Bighorn Since 1876

"This historiography portrays events in the manner which worldwide readers first heard about the accounts from national newspapers. Often the reporters were witnessing these events as they happened.... I would recommend this book as a primary historical source to be used along with other resources to form a better view of accurate actual
events." -- Donovin Sprague, Lakota Country Times, January 2014

Sioux War Dispatches: Reports from the Field, 1876-1877
, tells the story of the Great Sioux War, including the battle of the Little Big Horn, primarily through the eyes of contemporary newspaper correspondents, both civilian and military. The volume begins with the Black Hills dilemma and the issue of the unceded territory (the disputed lands that were adjacent to the Great Sioux Reservation) and continues through to the spring of 1877 with the surrender of the legendary Sioux leader Crazy Horse. Along the way readers will learn about the Reynolds battle, the skirmish at Tongue River Heights, the battle of the Rosebud, the battle of the Little Big Horn, the skirmish at Warbonnet Creek, the fight at Slim Buttes, and more. In addition to numerous annotated excerpts from those who were there, are rare original dispatches, reprinted in full, that will transport readers back in time to experience first hand the action of the Great Sioux War.

About the Author: MARC H. ABRAMS is author of Crying for Scalps: St. George Stanley's Sioux War Narrative, and his articles have appeared in the Research Review of the Little Big Horn Associates and the Journal of the Wild West History Association. He lives in Brooklyn, New York, with his wife and son.

Book Description Westholme, 2012. 1-82. Condition: New. The 'Black Hills dilemma' followed the discovery of gold in South Dakota in 1874. The problem was that the land was guaranteed by treaty for the 'absolute and undisturbed use and occupation of the Indians'. The presence of illegal prospectors therefore provoked Sioux attacks and a war that included Custer's famous defeat at Little Big Horn. This history of the conflict is primarily told through the reports of contemporary newspaper correspondents, both civilian and military, many republished for the first time. Off-mint.
