The Sand Creek Massacre by Stan Hoig( Book )

18 editions published between 1961 and 1990 in English and held by 866 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sometimes called "The Chivington Massacre" by those who would emphasize his responsibility for the attack and "The Battle of Sand Creek" by those who would imply that it was not a massacre, this event has become one of our nations most controversial Indian conflicts. The subject of army and Congressional investigations and inquiries, a matter of vigorous newspaper debates, the object of much oratory and writing biased in both directions, the Sand Creek Massacre very likely will never be completely and satisfactorily resolved. This account of the massacre investigates the historical events leading to the battle, tracing the growth of the Indian-white conflict in Colorado Territory. The author has shown the way in which the discontent stemming from the treaty of Fort Wise, the depredations committed by the Cheyennes and Arapahoes prior to the massacre, and the desire of some of the commanding officers for a bloody victory against the Indians laid the groundwork for the battle at Sand Creek

Tribal wars of the southern plains by Stan Hoig( Book )

9 editions published between 1992 and 2011 in English and held by 692 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Few people who cross the Great Plains today recollect that for centuries the land was a battleground where Indian nations fought one another for their own survival and then stood bravely against the irrepressible forces of white civilization. Even among those aware of the history, Plains Indian conflicts have been seen largely in terms of American conquest. In this readable narrative history, well-known Indian historian Stan Hoig tells how the native peoples of the southern plains have struggled continually to retain their homelands and their way of life. Tribal Wars of the Southern Plains is a comprehensive account of Indian conflicts in the area between the Platte River and the Rio Grande, from the first written reports of the Spaniards in the sixteenth century through the United States-Cheyenne Battle of the Sand Hills in 1875. The reader follows the exploits and defeats of such chiefs as Lone Wolf, Satanta, Black Kettle, and Dull Knife as they signed treaties, led attacks, battled for land, and defended their villages in the huge region that was home to the Wichitas, Comanches, Cheyennes, Arapahos, Kiowas, Osages, Pawnees, and other Indian nations. Unlike many previous studies of the Plains Indian wars, this one-volume synthesis chronicles not only the Indian-white wars but also the Indian-Indian conflicts. Of central importance are the intertribal wars that preceded the arrival of the Spaniards and continued during the next three centuries, particularly as white incursions on the north and east forced tribes from those regions onto the Great Plains. Stan Hoig details the numerous battles and the major treaties. He also explains the warrior ethic, which persists even among Plains Indian veterans today; the dual societal structure of peace and war chiefs within the tribes, in which both sometimes acted at cross-purposes, much the same as the U.S. government and frontier whites; techniques and tactics of Plains Indian warfare; and the role of medicine men, the Sun Dance, and spirituality in Plains warfare

White man's paper trail : grand councils and treaty-making on the Central Plains by Stan Hoig( Book )

6 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and held by 453 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In White Man's Paper Trail, journalist and author Stan Hoig presents a poignant history of the U.S. government's attempts to peacefully negotiate treaties with the tribes of the Central Plains, from the friendship pacts of the early 1800s through the last formal treaty in 1871, when Congress put an end to treaty-making." "Drawing on records and transcripts of treaty councils in Missouri, Arkansas, the Dakotas, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, Colorado, and Wyoming, Hoig reveals unequivocal testimony that documents countless fallacies and indiscretions by Euro-Americans in the making and enforcement of treaties."--BOOK JACKET
Jesse Chisholm, ambassador of the Plains by Stan Hoig( Book )

7 editions published between 1991 and 2005 in English and held by 363 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Chisholm Trail traveled by Texas longhorn cattle moving northward across present-day Oklahoma to Kansas, was named for mixed-blood Cherokee Jesse Chisholm (1805?-1868). Though Chisholm's prominence in western ore rests largely on this connection, he was active on the frontier long before the naming of the trail. Because he left no diaries, letters, or personal documents, however, his life has been shrouded in mystery. Stan Hoig offers the clearest picture to date of the many important roles Chisholm played: trailblazer, friend of Indian chiefs, linguist of Indan languages, scout, and perhaps most important - liaison between Indian tribes, the U.S. government, and the Republic of Texas. With his formidable intellect and talent for diplomacy, Chisholm blazed a trail in the history of the American Southwest more fascinating even than the one t hat bears his name
The Kiowas & the legend of Kicking Bird by Stan Hoig( Book )

4 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 356 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Until now, the mysterious death of Kicking Bird, one of the great leaders of the Kiowas, has overshadowed other significant events of his life. In the Kiowas and the Legend of Kicking Bird, Stan Hoig fills this void in scholarship by providing a more comprehensive account of this important tribal leader and the problems the Kiowas faced during his lifetime." "Kicking Bird strove to save his tribe by working peacefully with Quaker Indian officials and the military. He challenged tribal mores by being the first to promote formal schooling of Kiowa children. In 1873, he managed to temporarily halt Kiowas raids against Texas settlements and attempted to negotiate peace with the whites." "Kicking Bird's death is still a mystery. Was he poisoned by a vindictive enemy? Did he fall victim to the curse of the medicine man Mamanti, whom he helped send to prison? Or did he die naturally from a heart attack? Regardless of the circumstances of his death, Kicking Bird's life spanned one of the most crucial and volatile eras of Kiowa history." "Hoig provides a detailed look at the life of this tribal leader against the background of Kiowa history and culture."--Jacket

Perilous pursuit : the U.S. Cavalry and the northern Cheyennes by Stan Hoig( Book )

2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 278 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a well-paced dramatic narrative, Hoig tells the story of a betrayed people, an incompetent military leadership, a penurious Congress, a hard-pressed Indian Bureau, the suffering troops saddled with the task of stopping a foe far more prepared to fight than they, and an American nation almost totally insensitive to the welfare of its native people."--Jacket
Fort Reno and the Indian Territory frontier by Stan Hoig( Book )

5 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 254 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The story of Fort Reno, as detailed here by Stan Hoig, touches on several of the most important topics of nineteenth-century Western history: the great cattle drives, Indian pacification and the Plains Wars, railroads, white settlement, and the Oklahoma land rushes. Hoig deals not only with Fort Reno, but also with Darlington agency, the Chisolm Trail, and trading activities in Indian Territory from 1874 to approximately 1900. The author includes maps, photographs, and illustrations to enchance the narrative and guide the reader, like a scout, through a time of treacherous but fascinating events in the Old West."--Jacket

The Chouteaus : first family of the fur trade by Stan Hoig( Book )

6 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 233 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the late eighteenth century, the vast, pristine land that lay west of the Mississippi River remained largely unknown to the outside world. The area beckoned to daring frontiersmen who produced the first major industry of the American West--the colorful but challenging, often dangerous fur trade. At the lead was an enterprising French Creole family that founded the city of St. Louis in 1763 and pushed forth to garner furs for world markets. Stan Hoig provides an intimate look into the lives of four generations of the Chouteau family as they voyaged up the Western rivers to conduct trade, at times taking wives among the native tribes. They provided valuable aid to the Lewis and Clark expedition and assisted government officials in developing Indian treaties. National leaders, tribal heads, and men of frontier fame sought their counsel. In establishing their network of trading posts and opening trade routes throughout the Central Plains and Rocky Mountains, the Chouteaus contributed enormously to the nation's westward movement
Cowtown Wichita and the wild, wicked West by Stan Hoig( Book )

5 editions published between 2007 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Billy the Kid, Wyatt Earp, and Bat Masterson were here, hut so were Jesse Chisholm, Jack Ledford, Rowdy Joe and Rowdy Kate, Buffalo Bill Mathewson, Marshal Mike Meagher, Indian trader James Mead, Oklahoma Harry Hill, city founder Dutch Bill Greiffenstein, and a host of colorful characters like you've never known before." "Stan Hoig depicts a once-rambunctious cowtown on the Chisholm Cattle Trail, neighbor to the lawless Indian Territory, roaring and bucking through its Wild West days toward becoming a major American city." "Cowtown Wichita and the Wild; Wicked West provides tribute to those sometimes valiant, sometimes wicked, sometimes hilarious, and often audacious characters who played a role in shaping Wichita's past."--Jacket
