Between Two Fires: American Indians in the Civil War, by Laurence M. Hauptman

New York: The Free Press, 1995. xv, 304 pp. Illus, maps, notes, bibliog., index. . ISBN:0-02-914180-X.

The first comprehensive treatment of the role of Native Americans in the Civil War, Between Two Fires is somewhat episodic, if only because of the necessity of telling three stories, that of the "Confederate" Indians, that of the "Union" Indians, and that of the rest of the Indians. There is a good deal of valuable material here, despite an occasional understandable strident note. Recommended.
