"Peterson does an excellent job...the book virtually stands alone in articulating the Black Hawk War...represents a major contribution to the historiography of Utah."--Gregory C. Thompson, Director of the Western Americana Collection, J. Willard Marriott Library, University of Utah

"For almost eighty years, historians and the Utah community have waited for a scholar to write the history of Utah s Black Hawk War. We finally have the answer in this exemplary work by author John A. Peterson." Brigham D. Madsen, University of Utah
"

"This important book opens up to scholars and general readers alike not only a significant and long neglected domain of Utah s history, but also a rigidly suppressed one." Alfred L. Bush, curator, Princeton Collections of Western Americana

"Peterson does an excellent job the book virtually stands alone in articulating the Black Hawk War represents a major contribution to the historiography of Utah." Gregory C. Thompson, Director of the Western Americana Collection, J. Willard Marriott Library, University of Utah

"
A mind-stretching book! A well-written, carefully organized text. Peterson presents a persuasive argument that to the bench legs of spiritual, economic, and political affairs must now be added the leg of Mormon-Indian relations for a stable account of Mormon Utah history in itself, and in the context of a broader American history in the second half of the 19th century. Journal of the West
"
The first comprehensive study of this conflict in its historical context. [Peterson] not only draws on the abundant Mormon sources but he also mines the federal territorial, military, and Indian Affairs archives to recover the views of non-Mormon federal officials. Utah Historical Quarterly
"
Extensive and impressive research. This fine history illuminates more than just another conflict between Indians and whites in the West. It adds significantly to our understanding not only of Ute history but of subjects as wide-ranging as Mormon-federal relations, Navajo history during the Long Walk period, and the 1870s Ghost Dance. Western Historical Quarterly
"
A first-rate investigation into a little-know episode of the Indian Wars. Peterson s book is accessible to and high recommended for all readers with an interest in western history. Kirkus Reviews
"
Every student of Utah and Mormon history must hereafter consider Peterson s account. BYU Studies
