Ved slutningen af den amerikanske borgerkrig i 1865, startede en af de "farvefulde" perioder i amerikansk historie. Det var tiden for romantiske helte historier om guldgravere og det amerikanske kavaleri. Men indianerne var også helte, men deres kamp for at bevare deres bison og deres land er ingen romantiske historie. Indianernes historie er i denne bog gengivet i et omfangsrigt billedemateriale

General George Crook, his autobiography by George Crook( Book )

This book is the autobiography of "the greatest Indian fighter in the history of the United States." General George Crook was one Civil War general who didn't win his reputation east of the Mississippi River. To him, the Civil War was just an interlude. Before and after this great conflict, Crook was an Indian fighter. Crook fought the greatest of the Indian chieftains; served at frontier posts from the Columbia River to the Rio Grande, from Illinois to the Pacific. Yet he was as good at defending Indians as he was at fighting them. Crook understood and sympathized with them. He spoke plainly and often against injustices in the treatment of the Indian. And when he died, Red Cloud, chief of the Sioux, gave him his epitaph: "He, at least, had never lied to us." General George Crook: His Autobiography first came into print when Martin F. Schmitt, working in the archives of the Army War College in Washington, made the startling rediscovery of the Crook papers, which had been presented to the library of the War College by the widow of Walter S. Schuyler, one-time aid to General Crook. The existence of the autobiography had apparently not been previously suspected by any writer on the West, not even by the General's friend, Captain John G. Bourke, who wrote the only existing sketch of his life. A West Point graduate of 1852, General Crook spent his entire military career, with the exception of the four Civil War years, 1861 to 1865, on the frontier. His life paralleled western expansion during the latter half of the nineteenth century. In 1890, at the time of this death, he was commanding general of the Department of the Missouri, the largest and most active of all frontier commands. The Rogue River and Yakima wars in the eighteen fifties, Paiute pacification in the late sixties, the Apache campaigns of the seventies and eighties—all found Crook actively involved, fighting, counseling and making peace with the Indians. His Civil War experiences, while not uniformly successful or profitable, brought him into close contact with the great military figures of the day. He was a favorite of Grant's and a close associate of Sheridan, who had been in his class at West Point. His blunt, sometimes caustic opinions of his associates and the conduct of campaigns are new and often refreshing. General Crook's autobiography covers the period from Crook's graduation from West Point in 1852 to June 18, 1876, the day after the famous Battle of the Rosebud. The editor has supplemented it with other material, some from the Crook diaries and letters and contemporary clippings, on the other years of the General's life. - Publisher

Giant of the West : The Autobiography of General George Crook by George Crook( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the most important books in American military history, the autobiography of General George Crook is the account of his participation in the Civil War and Indian Wars. A fierce fighter, highly respected commander, and intelligent leader of men, Crook attempted to deal fairly with Native Americans despite duplicitous policy coming out of Washington. The autobiography covers Crook's time in the army before, during, and after the Civil War. It ends abruptly at the conclusion of the Battle of the Rosebud, just eight days before Custer's disaster at the Little Bighorn. Though Crook was never able to finish it, you'll read his accounts of some of the most important events of his day. After laying on a shelf for fifty years, Crook's great work on his military career was discovered and edited by Martin Schmitt. Not even Crook's friend and biographer, John Bourke, knew of its existence
