Bookjacket for   Five civilized tribes Cherokee, Chickasaw, Choctaw, Creek, [and] Seminole
Five civilized tribes Cherokee, Chickasaw, Choctaw, Creek, [and] Seminole Five civilized tribes Cherokee, Chickasaw, Choctaw, Creek, [and] Seminole / Grant Foreman ; introductory note by John R. Swanton
Side by side with the westward drift of white Americans in the 1830's was the forced migration of the Five Civilized Tribes from Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, and Florida. Both groups were deployed against the tribes of the prairies, both breaking the soil of the undeveloped hinterland. Both were striving in the years before the Civil War to found schools, churches, and towns, as well as to preserve orderly development through government and laws.

Draws on eyewitness accounts to tell the story of the fabled Santa Fe Trail For nearly half a century, the Santa Fe Trail served as an avenue of exchange, where transactions ranged from friendly give-and-take to guarded trade to lethal attempts to settle scores. In 1846, the trail became the means for American seizure of Mexican territory yet the economic and cultural exchanges continued even in the midst of war. In Bound for Santa Fe, Stephen G.

Bookjacket for  Mochi's war : the tragedy of Sand Creek
Mochi's war : the tragedy of Sand Creek Mochi's war : the tragedy of Sand Creek / Chris Enss and Howard Kazanjian

 As with many incidents in American history, the victors wrote the first version of history--turning the tragedy of the Sand Creek Massacre into a heroic feat by the Colorado militia tasked with moving the Cheyenne onto reservations. The truth of those events has made Colonel John Chivington's name infamous in Colorado and American history, and this dramatic and poignant reflection on the events leading to the tragic events of the massacre and the ensuing years of violence offers new perspectives with the hindsight of more than a century and a half of repercussions by telling the story of one of the women, a Cheyenne named Mochi, who became swept up in the cycle of war and vengeance that ensued.

Bookjacket for  The historical atlas of Native Americans
The historical atlas of Native Americans The historical atlas of Native Americans / Ian Barnes

 This fascinating book explores the history of the native peoples of North America, from the early arrival of humans from Asia and their migration throughout the continent, the first and subsequently devastating contacts with European explorers and settlers, to the present day plight of the surviving tribes and their attempts to adapt to modern society. Particular emphasis is placed on the role of women in tribal society, the traditional familial and societal structures of Native Americans, and their diverse cultural values and practices.

The authoritative, absorbing text is illuminated with beautifully illustrated maps showing the movements of the peoples and over 100 color photographs and illustrations plus reproductions of contemporary paintings depicting archaeological sites, artifacts, battles and great events, and the people involved: the chiefs and generals as well as the ordinary Indians and lost ways of life.
