Amerika'nın 1800'lerin ikinci yarısında Kızılderililere karşı yaptığı sistemli soykırım anlatılıyor.

"Uzak geçmişte bizim içimizde hiç şüphe yoktu. Dünya, kırmızı ve beyaz derili bütün insanlara yetecek kadar büyük gözüküyordu gözümüze; geniş düzlükler şimdi daralmış gözüküyor ve Beyaz adamın Kızılderili kardeşine duyduğu kıskançlık büyüyor. Bir zamanlar ticaret yapmaya gelirdi, şimdi savaşmaya geliyor. Yüzü şimdi bir kıskançlık ve öfke bulutuyla kaplı, bize geliyor ve gitmemizi söylüyor, kırgın

A good general review of the "highlights" of the US Army's 40 year genocidal/ethnic cleansing campaign against the native tribes. Did you know that 14 CMoH's were awarded for gallantry at Wounded Knee? I'm not real sure how gunning down women, children and old men in frozen ravines in the dead of a Dakota winter can in any stretch of your imagination be called gallant (or heroic).

This book was in my husband's library of books. He kept it because he really enjoyed it. However, for me, it was a little scattered. It was a hard read. Lost of things going on with strage names and places. He says that the indians were really mistreated. I agree on parts of that. However, this mess started of a cow that was not in good shape in the first place. America's did not keep their promises and the Indians way of live was really savage. I think that it is ashame that this could not have ...more

This is my first book on Indians of North America and it has more than whet my appetite for further exploration on the subject. Blake has written a very accessible book on the horrid and deplorable treatment that the US govt undertook to deal with the "Indian Problem". While romantic at times, the stories of the ongoing battles between the Americans and the native population goes beyond the romance and gets at the heart of the matter as to why the American govt, at the time, felt it was their du ...more

A superficial account of twelve conflicts between Native Americans and Whites. The book jacket states the the book is based on thirty years of "meticulous" research but there is no indication of any original research. Everything appears to be based on the research and writings of others. There is a bias toward the plight of the Native Americans and barely touches on Indian wrong doings.
