This book presents an in-depth history of the wars that have ravaged the history of the Native American people since white Europeans first landed on American shores.
"The first five chapters follow the torturous course of Indian-white relations in the eastern part of the New World. ... The second half of the book deals with the wars of conquest and revenge and attrition in the West. ... The violent and tragic events are viewed from both sides. The antagonists are presented as the three-dimensional , complex human beings they were. Background facts provide a new understanding of why these wars raged so long."
