Short biographical essays on six 19th century Indian leaders who clashed with white soldiers and settlers are accompanied by black-and-white documentary photographs appearing on nearly every double page spread. A well-researched. well-documented and attractively presented work provides a unique perspective on the Indian Wars. While Freedman's tone is relatively objective in that he does not condemn either side, his choice to focus on Indian leaders, rather than whites, gives readers a fresh outlook on the conflict and a new insight into U.S.A. history. (Ages 10-14)
