"Dr. William Nester offers this exhaustive examination of the Arikara War, the first conflict between the U.S. military and Indians west of the Mississippi. The book not only explores the war's immediate causes, actions, and consequences, but also places it within a larger context of clashing rival empires and the forces of imperialism. Nester also sheds light on the Arikara themselves...."
