Black Kettle by Thom Hatch
Book DescriptionThe Compelling, Tragic Story of a Great Cheyenne Chief As white settlers poured into the west during the nineteenth century, many famous Indian chiefs fought to stop them, including Sitting Bull, Crazy Horse, and Geronimo. But one great Cheyenne chief, Black Kettle, understood that the whites could not be stopped. To save his people, he worked unceasingly to establish peace and avoid bloodshed. Yet despite his heroic efforts, the Cheyennes were repeatedly betrayed and would become the victims of two notorious massacres, the second of which cost Black Kettle his life. In this first biography of black Kettle, historian Thom Hatch at last gives us the full story of this illustrious Native American leader, offering an unforgettable portrait of a chief who sought peace but found war. Praise For Thom Hatch The Blue, the Gray, and the Red "Clear and even-handed...This popular history recounts grim, bloody, lesser-known events of the Civil War...The slaughter of Black Kettle's Cheyennes at Sand Creek ...forms a devastating chapter." -Publishers Weekly The Custer Companion "Highly recommended ...a reliable and impartial guide to the subject and literature." -Library Journal Custer and the Battle of Little Bighorn "A work that is readable by itself, meticulously researched and clearly written." -The Tulsa World
