On the Great Plains, warfare was virtually constant from 1850 to 1890.

Yet the story of the Pawnee scouts who fought as cavalry for the U.S. Army during those Indian Wars has largely been untold until this book. They fought to enact revenge against their enemies: Sioux, Cheyennes and Arapahos. Mark Van de Logt’s tome offers a fresh perspective of a people who played pivotal roles in many crucial Plains campaigns.
