cover photo. by Ray Richardson; b/w. map illustrating the areas mentioned in this book which cites ten important instances where the white man has encroached on the sacred grounds of Indian tribes. "How can you buy or sell the sky - the warmth of the land? The idea is strange to us. We do not own the freshness of the air or the sparkle of the water. How·can you buy them from us? ... We know that the white man does not understand our way. One portion of the land is the same to him as the next, for he is a stranger who comes in the night and takes from the land whatever he needs. The earth is not his brother but his enemy, and when he has conquered it, he moves on. He leaves his fathers' graves, and his children's birthright is forgotten ...." - Sealth (a Duwamish Chief, 1865) The desperate struggles of the Indian people for survival in this century are too widespread and various to be treated in a single volume; those dealt with in this book may be taken as representative of many others in "the New Indian Wars" which, it is hoped, will eventually attract the attention they deserve.
