Description

In a sweeping narrative, Peter Cozzens tells the story of the wars and negotiations that destroyed native ways of life as the American nation continued its expansion onto traditional tribal lands after the Civil War. Cozzens illuminates the encroachment experienced by the tribes and the tribal conflicts over whether to fight or make peace, and explores the squalid lives of soldiers posted to the frontier and the ethical quandaries faced by generals who often sympathised with their native enemies.
