This book by Peter Cozzens is a sweeping, definitive history of the battles and negotiations that destroyed the Indian way of life even as they paved the way for the emergence of the United States we know today.

“A detailed recounting of random carnage, bodies burned, treaties broken and treachery let loose across the land… Cozzens admirably succeeds in framing the Indian Wars with acute historical accuracy… Demonstrates vast knowledge of American military history” – Douglas Brinkley, The New York Times Book Review.

The full title of this book is: “The Earth is Weeping: The Epic Story of the Indian Wars for the American West”. Will be published by Vintage UK in September 2017.
