Death of the Iron Horse

by

Death of the Iron Horse Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Iron Horse was coming...Thundering and panting and breathing black smoke, it was a fearsome thing. The Cheyenne people had never seen a steam locomotive before, and it terrified them. Would it come right over the hill, into their camp, just as the relentless soldiers and white settlers had done before? andlt;BRandgt;Powerful words and pictures tell the true story of August 7, 1867 — the only time an "Iron Horse" was derailed by Native Americans. It is a tale of courage and pride and of a people caught up in an unequal struggle to preserve their sacred way of life.

Synopsis:

In an act of bravery and defiance against the white men encroaching on their territory in 1867, a group of young Cheyenne braves derail and raid a freight train.

Synopsis:

Includes bibliography (verso t.p.)
