Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From the colonial period to the end of the 19th century, from King Phillip's war to the Wounded Knee Massacre, fighting between the American Indians and the U.S. government created upheaval in the everyday lives of American Indians, affecting everything from trade and food to marriage, housing, and family life.

The continuous power struggle between distinct cultures created the backdrop for the creation of the United States we know today, as well as the infancy of American foreign policy. Daily Life during the Indian WarS≪/i> will immerse readers in the true stories of a wide range of American Indian peoples as they fought to preserve everything they had and held dear—their traditions, their lands, and their identities.

Book News Annotation:

Confer's (PhD, American history) textbook, appropriate for high school students or advanced middle-schoolers, offers an introduction to the long history of violence between Native Americans and European settlers. The text is broken down into large chunks of time and place, from the 1600's to the late 1800's. Beginning with discussion of the conflicts with early British settlers in New England and Virginia, following chapters discuss the West, and the northern and southern plains. An epilogue adds material on the immediate aftermath of Wounded Knee. Several photographs of Native Americans and their homes are included.
