The Utes Must Go!

The Utes Must Go! Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When historian Peter Decker began searching for the full story of how Colorado Ute Indians were displaced from their lands, friends asked, "Why investigate the Utes? We know the outcome." Fortunately for readers of ""The Utes Must Go!," Decker continued his extensive research, bringing to light the complete drama of a proud Indian people swept away by the 19th-century tide of pioneer settlement, racism, and greed. In this epic story, readers will meet such figures as Ute Chiefs Ouray and "Captain Jack," U.S. Army Maj. Thomas Thornburgh, Interior Secretary Carl Schurz, famed newspaperman Horace Greeley, and finally, Indian Agent Nathan Meeker, whose relentless mission to turn Indian hunters into farmers led to the tragedy at Milk Creek in 1879.

Synopsis:

Tracing three centuries of Ute Indian history, "The Utes Must Go!" chronicles the policies and incidents that led to the involuntary removal of the Ute Indians from Colorado, New Mexico, and Wyoming.
