The Plains Indian Wars were not like most other wars: there were few large battles, and they took place across a huge but sparsely populated region. So why are the wars such a contentious topic? How did they affect people on both sides of the conflict? This book seeks to relate the overall events and chronology of the Plains Indian wars and shows their impact on everyday lives.
