Synopsis

The newest book from the critically-acclaimed author of A New World and The Rivals brings to vivid life a violent and all-too-human chapter in the history of the American West. In 1869, Federal Indian Agent Alfred B. Meacham traveled to northern California to convince a band of Modoc Indians to return to the reservation. A bloody war ensued that lasted until 1873 and paved the way for more famous, but equally bloody, battles at Little Bighorn and Wounded Knee.
