Thought I was going to get a straightforward account of the atrocities suffered by native peoples at the hands of the US Government. Instead, this book is just another whitewashed history. The author presents a sensibility to America's use of force and violence with one hand, while slipping the dagger of cultural genocide between the ribs of American natives with her other hand. According to her, the forced erasure of the "savage and uncivilized" native culture is "just and humane" as opposed to the actions of the United States Government. She has no problem with genocide; she just prefers a more subtle and palatable genocide rather than a violent and morally evocative genocide. For someone who was allegedly criticizing the actions of the US Government, she argued in favor of their imperialism an awful lot.

Helen Hunt Jackson was a pioneer in the movement by "palefaces of conscience" for more humane treatment of the American "Indian". She (through her writings) was responsible for elimination of the worst abuses by the US Army and the Indian Bureau. This book (the capstone of her research) outlines the findings she made the original wording of treaties with various tribes and how the whites, not the Native Americans, had been the ones to abrogate the treaties.

Anyone interested in justice for Native peoples needs to read this book. I found it hard to obtain through the library systems in the Philadelphia, PA area (and we have some of the best available). I highly recommend this for any citizen who considers themself informed.

The duplicity used when dealing with the pure honesty of the American Indian is unbelievable. A government capable of reniging on treaty after treaty, of lieing, of re-writing treaties whtat promis this and that 'UNLESS' and then begin the reasons it would be advantageous to tear up the treaties is shocking these many years later. A must read for, not re writing history, but for presenting for the first time history as it was.

Until Americans of all backgrounds, become brave and healthy enough to learn and deal with the truth of their terrible history, we will continue to suffer in the present for our crimes of the past.

Outdated but filled with solid facts. Not easy to read...but nothing worth knowing is simple.

Ready for a good read. Book arrived in perfect condition.
Ultra-depressing outrage-inducing book. I almost wish I hadn't bought this. But history is history, and these things did happen.
