This early work on American history is both expensive and hard to find in its first edition. It contains details on the Spirit Lake Massacre where a band of Santee Sioux attacked a white settlement in Iowa. This is a fascinating work and thoroughly recommended for anyone interested in American history. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
