Moon of Bitter Cold begins in 1866 when the Civil War has
ended, but the war in the west, with its bloody collision
of cultures, is increasingly tense and dangerous. As the
US Army builds more forts on the Great Plains and into the
Wyoming Territory, the Plains Indians raid, attack, and
skirmish, but to little effect.
Then Red Cloud, a Lakota Sioux war leader, assembles more
than 3,000 warriors, uniting the Sioux with the Cheyenne,
Arapho, and Crow in order to make war on the white man.
This is the only war that the western Indians ever win
against the encroaching settlers.
Thorough and impartial, vivid and gritty, Moon of Bitter
Cold is a major narrative about a critical period and its
pivotal figures on a frontier that won't know peace for
