Although it has been largely ignored by historians, it was the war waged against the Shoshoni tribe that opened the book on Indian massacres in the West.  The Shoshoni were victims of a bloodbath more extreme than that at Wounded Knee, and more deadly than the more famous slaughter at Sand Creek.

Review: Massacre at Bear River: First, Worst, Forgotten

User Review  - Diane - Goodreads

Interesting, factual study of the Massacre at Bear River. I enjoyed learning the historical aspects. Most of my reading on these topics is fiction, and reality is fairly glossed over, or greatly exaggerated. Read full review
