Grasshoppers in Summer

Available at Books In Motion and Amazon

On December 21st 1866 Red Cloud and a band of Oglala Lakota and Cheyenne warriors defeated a U.S. Army force led by Captain William J. Fetterman. The Fetterman defeat ended Red Cloud's war for control of the Bozeman Trail with the signing of the Fort Laramie Treaty in 1868. President Ulysses S. Grant came to office the following year on a reform platform that included Indian peace policy. Grasshoppers in Summer tells the epic story of the making and breaking of the Fort Laramie Treaty through the eyes of opposing political, military and tribal leaders. Relentless fraud, corruption, cultural and political pressures frustrated Grant's effort to reform Indian policy. A conspiracy of military, railroad and mining interests destroyed the Fort Laramie Treaty, leading to the drum beat of war. The plains tribe's last great victory at Greasy Grass would win the bitter spoils of total defeat.
