9780143116219: Shadows at Dawn (The Penguin History of American Life)

In April 1871, a group of Americans, Mexicans and Tohono O'odham Indians surrounded an Apache village at dawn and murdered near 150 men, women and children in their sleep. In the past century the attack, which came to be known as the Camp Grant Massacre, has largely faded from memory. Now drawing on oral histories, newspaper reports and the participants' own accounts, prize-winning author Karl Jacoby brings this perplexing incident and tumultuous era to life, painting a sweeping panorama of the American Southwest.

Book Description Penguin Putnam Inc, United States, 2009. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 204 x 136 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. A masterful reconstruction of one of the worst Indian massacres in American history In April 1871, a group of Americans, Mexicans, and Tohono O?odham Indians surrounded an Apache village at dawn and murdered nearly 150 men, women, and children in their sleep. In the past century the attack, which came to be known as the Camp Grant Massacre, has largely faded from memory. Now, drawing on oral histories, contemporary newspaper reports, and the participants? own accounts, prize-winning author Karl Jacoby brings this perplexing incident and tumultuous era to life to paint a sweeping panorama of the American Southwest?a world far more complex, diverse, and morally ambiguous than the traditional portrayals of the Old West.
