In this unique study, Gregory and Susan Michno chronicle morethan three hundred lesser-known but signifi cant confl icts of thewestern Indian Wars, describing not only skirmishes between Indiansand the United States Army, but also Indian raids on civiliansettlers and travelers. By shifting attention away from the largerand more famous battles, the authors bring into sharper focus thesmall-scale confrontations that defined the Indian Wars.Forgotten Fights presents vivid accounts of these rarely examinedconfl icts, giving readers and researchers enlightening glimpses into the unpredictable lives of the immigrants, homesteaders, soldiers,and Indians of the American frontier. An excellent reference book in its own right, it also serves as a supplement to Gregory F. Michno s Encyclopedia of Indian Wars: western Battles and Skirmishes, 1850 1890 (Mountain Press, 2003). Historical and modern photographs enhance the text, while detailed maps pinpoint battle sites.
