Here, from American Heritage, is the dramatic story of the violent conflicts between Native Americans and white settlers that lasted more than 300 years, the effects of which still resonate today. Acclaimed historians Robert M. Utley and Wilcomb E. 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.

I love my country, but reading this book was difficult. The original American people were wiped out to almost nothing by greedy newcomers. They were promised peace and safety time and time again were stolen from, forced from their land and killed off like they were a bad disease. I’m glad I read this, it is little tuff to read, for me at least due to the shear amount of information listed. I think anyone who wants to understand why the American Indian population is what it is now should read this. It’s sad to think of the deeper history of this country that most Americans will never know anything about, and leaves me wondering how much was lost for good. May they rest in peace.
