A voluminous bibliography of excellent materials devoted to the Sioux War of 1876 attests to the fascination this subject holds for amateur and professional historians. One basis of interest may be a morbid preoccupation in the shocking violence that was manifested as standard practice by the red man--and somtimes by his white adversary. A more humane motivation may be found in the sympathy which many students express on behalf of the underdog, the Indian. Other researchers associate themselves, in their imagination, with the hardy folk who forged a civilization in the savage West.
