Media reviews

The story of how the West was lost is told through the biographies of six chiefs who were faced with the effects of European westward expansion: Red Cloud (Oglala Sioux), Satanta (Kiowa), Quanah Parker (Comanche), Washakie (Shoshone), Joseph (Nez Perce), and Sitting Bull (Hunkpapa Sioux). Whether the chiefs cooperated or resisted, the end result was the same in all cases---dispossession and removal to reservations. … This useful reference book is well-illustrated with good archival photographs.
