Plains Indian Raiders
The Final Phases of Warfare From the Arkansas to the Red RiverBook - 1968
From primary sources collected over some thirty years, both textual and photographic, Wilbur S. Nye tells the story of the military subjugation of the Plains Indians and their removal to reservations in Indian Territory.
Complementing the text, which covers a segment of American history that has heretofore been told chiefly in fragments, are the superb photographs of William S. Soule. As fine a craftsman as Mathew Brady, Soule made many photographs of the aboriginal red men. These pictures, showing exactly how the Indian looked, what they wore, and how they lived, are published here in a relatively complete collection (some near duplicates are omitted) for the first time.
