Massacres of the mountains: a history of the Indian wars of the Far WestUser Review - Not Available - Book Verdict
Stackpole is using Dunn's 1886 history of the Indian wars of the American West to launch its "Frontier Classics" series. The books are facsimiles of the originals, with new front matter such as ... Read full review
The account of the Modoc War, written in the sentimental hyperbole of the age, is remarkably similar to the voice of Alfred Meacham, author of "Wigwam And Warpath," and others, with his praises of "Winema" (Toby Riddle), and is at such variance in fact and particularly with attributions of certain characters, that I can't recommend it.
Scarface Charley, for example, never denounced Captain Jack, nor did he ever join with Hooker Jim, who led the massacre of the settlers. Given that Toby Riddle's son Jeff also made disparaging remarks about Scarface that disagree with those made by Quinn in "Hell With the Fire Out" and Murray in "The Modocs and Their War", and others, I would chalk this account up to Riddle's faulty and biased memories of the conflict.
