The Indian Wars
Writer Judy Alter explores the wars of expansion that were fueled by the desire to fulfill Manifest Destiny. As white settlements grew, they expanded into the homelands of various American Indian tribes, destroying entire nations of people. As the author points out, the story of the Indian Wars is too often a story of greed and broken promises by some natives, settlers, and the U.S. government, as well as ruthless violence on both sides. THE INDIAN WARS focuses on battles as far east as Florida and as far west as the Oregon Territory. Much of the book focuses on the Midwest and the Dakotas.
