Here, from American Heritage, is the dramatic story of the violent conflicts between Native Americans and white settlers that lasted more than 300 years, the effects of which still resonate today. Acclaimed historians Robert M. Utley and Wilcomb E. Washburn examine both small battles and major wars - from the Native rebellion of 1492 to Crazy Horse and the Sioux War to the massacre at Wounded Knee. Robert M. Utley (b. 1929) was the former chief historian for the National Park Service and has written sixteen books on the history of the American West. The Western History Association annually gives out the Robert M. Utley Book Award for the best book published on the military history of the frontier and western North America. Wilcomb E. Washburn (1925-1997) was an American historian who received his PhD in the History of American Civilization from Harvard University. He served as a director for the Smithsonian's American Studies Program.
