MEDIA REVIEWS
"Seneca elder and activist in Ohio and Native American studies scholar Mann describes deliberately giving smallpox to the Ohio Indians in 1763, marching the Choctaws into a cholera plague zone during their already genocidal Removal in 1832, sending hemorrhagic smallpox to the High Plains peoples in 1837, and the poisoning of the Cayuses. There is no shortage of primary documentation and first-person testimony, she insists, no obscure gaps in knowledge, no tortured logical escape from the glaring evidence that Euro-American settlers and their military and government officials used germ warfare on Native Americans as part of their imperial expansion across the New World." - SciTech Book News
"In four fascinating, extremely detailed, and heavily cited chapters, Mann digs into this record to bring to light the shameful and even shocking methods used against Native Americans in the drive west. . . . Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates and above." - Choice
