This classic blood-soaked indictment of Indians recounts some 300 years of depredations, massacres, torture, kidnapping, intrigue, and hatred. Beginning with a summary of the adventures of Cortez and Pizarro (mostly based on the contemporary writings of historian William Prescott), the author details the Indian wars in New England and concludes with the more recent expeditions against Tecumseh, the Seminoles and Black Hawk.
