Now in Paperback! The relationship between North American Indians and Europeans, friendly at first, took a violent turn with the kidnapping of natives by mariners, and conflict flared as the frontier line moved north from Mexico and west from the Atlantic coast settlements. Heard presents brief articles in dictionary arrangement about Indian tribes and leaders, explorers, missionaries, traders, settlers, soldiers, battles, treaties, and other topics in the frontier history of the present U.S. from the arrival of the first seafarers to the end of the Indian wars. The work is divided regionally. Vol.I, published in 1987, related events in the Southeastern Woodlands. Vol.II, published in 1990, is devoted to the Northeastern Woodlands. Vol.III covers the Great Plains. Vol. IV will describe events in the Far West. The final volume will include a general index, bibliography, and chronology. Cloth edition [0-8108-2767-0] published in 1993.

Heard is well qualified to compile these entries...The author's treatment of mass killers of American Indians such as John Jarboe is forthright and honest. He is also historically accurate in his treatment of atrocities, be it by Indians in the Massacre of the Lava Beds or by whites in the Mountains Meadowo Massacre or the Round Valley Massacres. * Montana The Magazine of Western History *
...a handy reference tool for students of the American West. Heard's dictionary provides a unique collection of material. * South Dakota History *
