Traveler's Guide to the Great Sioux War. by Paul L. Hedren, Montana Historical Society Press, Helena MT 1986, 126 p.
Waged over the glitter of Black Hills gold, the Sioux War of 1876-77 transformed the entire northern plains from Indian and buffalo country to the domain of miners, cattlemen, and other Euro-American settlers. Keyed to official highway maps, this richly illustrated guide leads the traveler to virtually every principal landmark associated with the war, from Fort Phil Kearny where the Sioux besieged soldiers sent to guard the Bozeman Trail in the 1860s to Fort Buford, the site of Sitting Bull's surrender in 1881. A good travel book on the Sioux War of 1876-1877 with an excellent wrap-up of the events and good guidance on how to visit the places. [review by GoodReads]
