Rosen Pub Group
Documenting a series of conflicts between white American settlers and the Native American population in the region, this book tells of the treaty that established the Sioux reservation. With a balanced sensitivity to both the ambitions of the settlers and the concerns of the Native Americans, the book provides a close look at American territorial expansion during the mid-nineteenth century. The use of primary source documents, artifacts of the time, and portraits of the major players coupled with informative sidebars profiling key battles and leaders provides a keen look at the treaty and its consequences to the people and the culture of the time.
