    University of Nebraska Press 2007; US$ 19.95

    The 1870 Ghost Dance was a significant but too often disregarded transformative historical movement with particular impact on the Native peoples of northern California.

  • American Indians, the Irish, and Government Schoolingby Michael C. Coleman

    University of Nebraska Press 2007; US$ 49.95

    For centuries American Indians and the Irish experienced assaults by powerful, expanding states, along with massive land loss and population collapse. In the early nineteenth century the U.S. government, acting through the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA), began a systematic campaign to assimilate Indians. more...

  • Andean Tragedyby William F. Sater

    University of Nebraska Press 2007; US$ 60.00

    The year 1879 marked the beginning of one of the longest, bloodiest conflicts of nineteenth-century Latin America. The War of the Pacific pitted Peru and Bolivia against Chile in a struggle initiated over a festering border dispute.

  • Because a Fire Was in My Headby Lynn Stegner

    University of Nebraska Press 2007; US$ 24.95

    Kate Riley is not the sort of heroine we meet in most American novels. Self-centered, shape-shifting, driven from one man to another and one city to the next, she is all too real?but not at all the loyal and steady homebody of idealized womanhood. When we first encounter her, Kate (or Katherine, or Kate of the Prairie, or Katrina) is about to undergo... more...

  • The Best of All Seasonsby Dan Aadland

    University of Nebraska Press 2007; US$ 24.95

    Since first learning to handle a Winchester .22 as a kid, Dan Aadland has exulted in hunting?not as a sport but as a calling. In this book he takes readers to Montana?s prairies and mountains in search of antelope, whitetail deer, moose, and the occasional upland bird as he vividly describes the rituals and camaraderie of hunting culture. more...

  • Branch Rickeyby Lee Lowenfish

    University of Nebraska Press 2007; US$ 34.95

    He was not much of a player and not much more of a manager, but by the time Branch Rickey (1881?1965) finished with baseball, he had revolutionized the sport?not just once but three times. In this definitive biography of Rickey?the man sportswriters dubbed ?The Brain,? ?The Mahatma,? and, on occasion, ?El Cheapo??Lee Lowenfish tells the full and colorful... more...

  • Buffalo Nationby Ken Zontek

    University of Nebraska Press 2007; US$ 19.95

    The gruesome story of the devastation of buffalo herds in the late nineteenth century has become uncomfortably familiar. A less familiar story, but a hopeful one for the future, is Ken Zontek?s account of Native peoples? efforts to repopulate the Plains with a healthy, viable bison population. more...

  • The Cowboy Girlby John Clayton

    University of Nebraska Press 2007; US$ 21.95

    In 1901, Philadelphia's celebrity female journalist stepped off a train in Blackfoot, Montana, and into a world of living legends. The miners and frontiersmen, Indians and trappers that Caroline Lockhart met there inspired this beautiful, single, strong-willed woman to live a life she had only dreamed about in what remained of the Wild West. more...

  • The Enigma Womanby Kathleen A. Cairns

    University of Nebraska Press 2007; US$ 25.95

    ?Crack shot.? ?Enigma woman.? ?Good with ponies and pistols.? ?A much-married woman.?. What if such an unconventional woman?and the press unanimously agreed that Nellie May Madison was indeed unconventional?were to get away with murder? Shortly after her husband?s bullet-riddled body was found in the couple?s Burbank apartment, police issued an all-points... more...

  • Ethnicity and Equalityby Azouz Begag

    University of Nebraska Press 2007; US$ 14.95

    In the fall of 2005 the streets of France were rocked by civil disturbances on a scale unseen for decades.
