Originally subtitled A Sketch of the United States Government's Dealings with Some of the Indian Tribes, this 1881 work reviewed the history of battles and treaties with Native American groups, finding a trail of brutality, broken promises, and land grabs. Separate chapters chronicle the experiences of (in the book's usage) the Delawares, Cheyennes, Nez Percés, Sioux, Poncas, Winnebagoes, and Cherokees. Also included is a chapter detailing a number of massacres of Native Americans by whites. The appendix from the original edition has been omitted. Annotation ©2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
