Summary
"Here are the true stories of the West's most terrible massacres -- Sacramento River, Mountain Meadows, Sand Creek, Marias River, Camp Grant, and Wounded Knee, among others. These massacres involved Americans killing Indians, but also Indians killing Americans, and, in the case of the hugely controversial Mountain Meadows Massacre in 1857, Mormons slaughtering a party of American settlers, including women and children" --
Summary
Recounts massacres that took place in America throughout the latter half of the nineteenth century, describing violent clashes involving Native Americans, pioneer settlers, and others
