    this book is pretty evil, and at the same time it is full of stuff i didn t know, so i read the whole thing, nauseous I would love to quote a passage in entirety to show the bigotry of it, but i don t have it in front of me in a word, the book s premise, that frontier relations were characterized by mutual incomprehension on the part of indians and whites is belied by the narratives presented in the book itself they tell overwhelmingly of the one sided dispossession and extermination of nativ this book is pretty evil, and at the same time it is full of stuff i didn t know, so i read the whole thing, nauseous I would love to quote a passage in entirety to show the bigotry of it, but i don t have it in front of me in a word, the book s premise, that frontier relations were characterized by mutual incomprehension on the part of indians and whites is belied by the narratives presented i...

    This book had good information in it but what he said in his introduction bothered me The author began by criticizing Dee Brown s Bury My Heart At Wounded knee foe only telling Native American western history from a Native American perspective, and that he was too critical of whites While revisionist history often crosses lines Brown s book is an example of a group taking back their history This tainted the rest of the book for me For example he said the missionaries were the best thing to This book had good information in it but what he said in his introduction bothered me The author began by criticizing Dee Brown s Bury My Heart At Wounded knee foe only telling Native American western history from a Native American perspective, and that he was ...

    Lots of information, and the closing of the frontier is filled with fascinating details, stories and atrocities This account doesn t take advantage of any of it It is dry Could have been so much better.

  8. Fredrick Danysh says:

    Utley does another excellent job writing about the American Indian Wars The frontier was constantly moving westward as the nation expanded The author covers the period from the Mexican American War to just prior to the turn of the century A good read.
