Scarce, Out Of Print, Book "Two hundred and seventy authentic photographs and sketches and a running narrative of rare simplicity and power make up this story of the struggle between the United States and the western Indian tribes which chose to fight rather than to go tamely on reservations. The pictures have been brought together from many sources, and for the first time present a contemporary pictorial record of the chiefs, the scouts, the historic Army posts, battles and skirmishes, from Red Cloud's attack on Fort Phil Kearny in 1866 down to the day of final tragedy at Wounded Knee, South Dakota, December 29, 1890."

It does have Library stamp inside, label on spine, some dark marks on covers under plastic covering and title page has been neatly removed. Editorial Review by From Library Journal: "Klein's editions of the Reference Encyclopedia have been the major source for listings of information on American Indian and Alaska Native groups for more than a decade. The first section of the book contains the source listings, presenting names, addresses, and often leaders of the tribal organizations (both federal and other) across the United States. The resource provides similar information for Canada. The second section is the bibliography, which contains citations for 4500 in-print titles. Separate lists by subject follow, and there is also a listing of publishers of Indian titles. The Directory has an excellent index, but does not include biographical information. Biennial editions are planned. Surprisingly, these two reference titles do not always list the same organizations and programs in similar categories. Tribal entries tend to be similar, though the exclusion of nonfederally recognized groups is a serious omission in the directory. While Klein's encyclopedia entries in other areas have been gleaned from years of compilation, the Directory has extracted information from a variety of existing reference publications, as well as some original research. Putting this information in one place is certainly a contribution, though the compilers need to dig further to include organizations neglected by major reference sources. Because of the disparity of the information included in these publications, libraries with serious collections on Native Americans will want both. ": Ex-Library

006011006011: "The Plains Indian War was one of the most controversial conflicts in American military history, as the US Army faced a tough opponent that challenged it for decades following the end of the Civil War. The Army leadership endured a severe lack of resources, political constraints, an indifferent public, tough environmental conditions, and other problems of the frontier. Army officers and men had to adapt to these constraints, and this period also proved to be a trial of the ability and endurance of the common soldier. This title details the organization, development, training, tactics and command structures of the US Army during its subjugation of the Plains Indian tribes. " Scarce, Out Of Print, Book.
