Fort Laramie and the Sioux
This highly acclaimed account of the white man's impact on the plains Indians is told in gripping narrative, using Fort Laramie as the focal point. Across these pages move mountain men, westward pioneers, hide traders, blue-coated soldiers, and warriors of the Sioux, Cheyenne and Arapaho nations. Located in the heart of the Indian country, Fort Laramie was the storm center in the decline and fall of these once-powerful tribes. Fort Laramie and the Sioux won the Wyoming State Historical Society's annual award for the best book on Wyoming history.
