Reilly (communication and Native American studies, U. of Nebraska-Omaha) fleshes out the broad strokes of interaction between natives and settlers in the middle of North America from the 1860s to the 1890s by drawing on the articles and opinions in the local newspapers where the wars were being fought. Among the episodes he documents are the Great Sioux uprising in August- December 1862, the Sand Creek Massacre November 1864, the Little Big Horn campaign January-July 1876, the flight of the Nez Perce March-October 1877, and the Ghost Dance and Wounded Knee 1890-91.
