a027t.jpgDESCRIPTION: Stated FIRST EDITION, The Art of Tom Lovell: An invitation to history, text by Don Hedgpeth and Walt Reed, William Morrow and Company, Inc. C. 1993 by The Greenwich Workshop, Inc. Published by William Morrow and Co. Inc. New condition hardcover with dj (slightly rubbed from storage). 160 pages, 95 full-color images. Shown are the artists best canvases, among them his famed depictions of Lee's surrender and the Fifty-fourth Massachusetts' assault (in film, the climax of Glory). His spark of inspiration is usually to visualize an incident he has read of in the journals of the first white explorers and trappers, such as those of Lewis and Clark. Whether it's Clark firing his rifle or Indians encountering a cannon lost by Fremont, Native Americans are generally presented as wary but curious about the newcomers; Lovell puts the warfare outside of the frame.

What really happened on that fateful day? Now, thanks to the work of Herman J. Viola, Curator Emeritus of the Smithsonian Institution, we are much closer to answering that question. Dr. Viola, a leader in the preservation of Native American culture and history, has collected here dozens of dramatic, never-before-published accounts by Indians who participated in the battle-accounts that have been handed down to the present day, often secretly and accompanied by oaths of silence, from one generation to the next. These remarkable eyewitness recollections provide a direct link to that day's events; together they constitute an unprecedented oral history of the battle from the Native American point of view and the most comprehensive eyewitness description of Little Bighorn we have ever had.

a341t.jpgDESCRIPTION: New copy, The American Indian Wars by John Tebbel & Keith Jennison, c. 1960. This edition published in 2003 by Castle Books. By far the most detailed coverage of the battles that happened between American settlers and native Americans. It provides not just a high level view, but details on the backgrounds and motivations for every battle. This book covers the little skirmishes, the huge battles, and the sequences and causes of them all. Want to know what Andrew Jackson did besides sign the infamous Indian Removal Act? It's all here, every battle including statistics on how many from each side were killed, injured or taken prisoner. One memorable story is the account of the purposeful extinction of the Pequot tribe where they chased down every last Indian they could find to eliminate the tribe from the face of the earth. These are but very small samples of the enormous coverage of this book.
