Please note, I do not add new books to my website until I actually have them in stock, as too many times in the past there have been the so called check's in the mail issues with problems from release dates to shipping and so on.  Many of the new titles you see around I will carry and when I do have the book in stock they will be posted immediately.

By Jeff Broome, Signed copies available at no extra charge, please request a signed copy if that is your preference.

In this volume, Jeff Broome has done a marvelous job of mining documents filed under the Indian depredation claims system—a federal Indian policy intending to “preserve peace on the frontiers” by allowing white settlers and Indians, alike, to file claims for the wrongs done by each other. The policy, the federal government hoped, would prevent frontier retaliations and violence. It failed miserably, but the resulting claims reveal nearly a century’s worth of previously unheard white voices describing the horrors of Indian-white conflict. Broome focuses on the roads to Denver, 1864–1869. His engaging reconstruction of this era and place, as seen through the lens of white frontiersmen and women, will inspire other researchers to don miner’s helmets and descend into this mother lode of heretofore-neglected historical evidence.
