The Long Death

The Long Death

The Last Days of the Plains Indians

by Ralph K Andrist

This compelling narrative explains how Native Americans found themselves time and again betrayed by the ever-expanding white nation of the East, fighting for lands on the edge of the shrinking frontier. Long considered a classic, this edition features an introduction by Dee Brown, author of Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee.

"To fully understand the America of today, one must know what happened to the Native Americans of the past. In The Long Death, Ralph K. Andrist tells the story with great sensitivity, forthrightness, and enlightened scholarship."--Dee Brown

"Impressive. . . . Mr. Andrist is exact and conscientious."--The New Yorker

"One of the most accurate and well-written accounts of the Plains Indian Wars."--American Anthropologist

"A magnificent interpretation of the subjugation of the Plains Indians by the resistless tide of explorers, miners, settlers, and soldiers who slowly but surely dispossessed them of their lands."--American West

"A vivid, swiftly paced account of the dispossession of the Plains Indians during the half century after 1840."--The New York Times Book Review
