Exiles and Pioneers: Eastern Indians in the Trans-Mississippi West
(2007)
  • John P. Bowes, Eastern Kentucky University
Abstract

Exiles and Pioneers focuses on the experiences of Shawnee, Delaware, Wyandot, and Potawatomi Indians from the late 1700s to the 1860s. The book uses this multi-tribal perspective to argue that these Indian communities both benefited and suffered from the ineffective policies of the federal government during this period of relentless western expansion.
