An absorbing and comprehensive work, INDIAN WARS recounts the violent conflicts between Native Americans and white settlers that lasted more than three hundred years, the effects of which still resonate today. Here, the widely respected historians Robert Utley and Wilcomb Washburn examine both small battles and major wars -- from the Native rebellion of 1492, to Crazy Horse and the Sioux War, to the massacre at Wounded Knee. This volume contains a new introduction by Robert Utley.
