Winner of the Westerners International Co-Founders Book Award. In January 1863 over two hundred Shoshoni men, women, and children died of the banks of the Bear River at the Hands of volunteer soldiers from California. Bear River was one of the largest Indian massacres in the Trans-Mississippi West. Brigham Madsen's detailed narrative of the events and conflicts that culminated in the massacre remains the definitive account of this bloody chapter in United States-Native American relations.
