    One thought on “American Heritage History of the Indian Wars”

    1. A Briefer OverviewMany historical accounts exist that examine a smaller group or battle in the warfare between the army and the Native Americans. Entire books may examine in detail, for example, Crazy Horse and his exploits. What is notable in this history is the inclusion of less famous conflicts such as those of the Bannock. Thus, this book provides much information that is often missing from other books on the subject.

    2. Fascinating and informative.This is a good overview detailing the fate of the indigenous peoples of the current United States at the hands of the invading Northern Europeans. Warlike tribes fighting for dominance resisting all attempts at peaceful coexistence. Treachery and broken promises dot the landscapeon all sides.

    3. An excellent overview of the military actions and engagements that pockmark the history of white-Indian relations from 1500 to 1900. The scope of this book doesn't include social conflicts, but for purely military actions, this volume is a stand-out.

    4. .Our Subugation of America's Native PeopleOur occupation of the American portion of this continent was accomplished with lies, broken treaties and wholesale extermination of the original population.My heart is broken. Unforgivable-a holocaust.

    5. A good account of the Indian Wars from when whites landed in America, to the Wounded Knee Massacre. If the authors had included maps into the book, the locations of those battles would have made the reading more informative

    6. I agree that the book is well written. It has quotes from American Indian leaders but the history is clearly written from the Western perspective. That is why I did not give the book another star.

    7. Utley has put together a history of the various Indian wars in the United States. He examines the causes, conduct, and consequences of these wars.

    8. Very good history of the indian warsThis is a well written history that is even handed and does not apportion blame to either side that is not historically accurate.
