Description

"The author provides graphic details concerning other atrocities perpetrated upon Kansas settlers by roving bands of Indians during the period. The purpose behind these revelations is not to sensationalize the anguish of the victims, but to demonstrate that recent scholarship has diminished or discounted the degree of suffering endured by the settlers in favor of emphasizing the horror and despair experienced by the Indians.
In examining the atrocities that occurred on the plains of Kansas during the Indian Wars, Broome culled the seldom used depredation claims filed by settlers victimized by Indian raids. It seems ironic that these pioneers could request compensation from the federal government for the loss of a pig, but could not expect indemnity as a result of sexual assault, the death of a family member, or wounds received during the Indian attacks."--David Dixon, Western Historical Quarterly--David Dixon "Western Historical Quarterly "
