George Bird Grinnell (September 20, 1849 – April 11, 1938) was an American anthropologist, historian, naturalist, and writer. Grinnell was born in Brooklyn, New York, and graduated from Yale University with a . Originally specializing in zoology, he became a prominent early conservationist and student of Native American life. Grinnell has been recognized for his influence on public opinion and work on legislation to preserve the American bison.

George Bird Grinnell has a deep and intimate connection with the Indian tribes of North America. This volume is about the proud, fearless Cheyenne. He covers their early wars with neighboring tribes, as well as the later wars with settlers brought on by westward expansion into Cheyenne territory. Indeed, the Cheyenne were friendly to whites up to the mid-1850's. The discovery of gold in the Cheyenne and Arapaho hunting lands would change that. The notorious Sand Creek Massacre of Black Kettle's band in 1864 would become the flash point.

This book is the story of the warfare of the most warlike tribe of the warlike Plains Indians, recorded by George Bird Grinnell. No other writer of his generation was associated with so many Plains tribes so continuously and for so long a time. For nearly sixty years after that time, until his death in 1938, he was much thrown with Plains Indians, and came to enjoy the confidence and respect of the leading chiefs and warriors of several tribes, including the Blackfeet and Pawnees, though.

When their struggles with the white men began, some of their older and wiser men strove earnestly to preserve peace, but their efforts failed. During these first wars between the whites and the Cheyennes, the United States Government was struggling for its very life. Its attention was concentrated on the war between the North and the South, and the movements of a few Indians on the thinly settled frontier attracted little notice. More by George Bird Grinnell.

Ok, I did not believe it. This white guy knows about the Cheyenne? He claims to know all kinds of facts and history.
I have books actually written by recent members of the Cheyenne. And yes, Grinnell knows some facts more than they do.
I was astonished so I checked him out on Wikipedia. George Grinnell is the real thing. He visited them and interviewed
them during the later part of the nineteenth century. He talked with elders of the Cheyenne during the last century and wrote it all in this book.
I am really impressed. He tries to stay out of the politics and drama and just relate what he learned. Of course the Cheyenne
are more complex than a simple book. That is why I continue to find books and read about these proud people. But this
a very good addition.

Wonderfully told story of a strong people. Presents both the Euroamerican and Indian perspective. The title was clearly crafted to attract readers; however if you read carefully you learn that actual fights between the tribes were not very frequent. This changed when Eastern settlers and the U.S. Army entered the picture and the Cheyennes and their allies became the hunted.

It would be nice if I could read it. It shows up on my screen, but because it did not complete the download, it cannot be opened.

Excellent. I worked on the Northern Cheyenne Reservation in Lame Dear, and this gave me plenty of insight of the small but powerful character of the Cheyennes.

One of the best books written on Native Americans.
Very well written account of negotiations, misunderstandings and violence between plains tribes, the U. S. Army and innocent families in the mid-1800s.
