From the mid-1860s until the end of organized resistance on the Great Plains, Red Cloud, the noted Oglala Sioux, epitomized for many the Indian problem. Centered on Red Cloud's career, this is an admirably impartial, circumstantial, and rigorously documented study of the relations between the Sioux and the United States government during the years after the Civil War. "A scholarly, yet entertaining account of the difficult transition of Sioux from the warrior lords of the Northern Plains to reservation Indian...Recommended reading for all students of Indian history."--American Book Collector. "Will undoubtedly stand as the standard account of the relations between the Sioux and the federal government."--Journal of American History. "A significant contribution."--American Historical Review. "[The author] handles his material with deft mastery and presents his reader with a clear portrayal of the many influences at work in the erosion of a people without once losing sight of the central figure in his narrative--Red Cloud."--Pacific Historical Review. A distinguished historian, James C. Olson is President Emeritus of the University of Missouri.
