One of the American West's bloodiest - and least known - massacres is searingly re-created in this generation-spanning history of native-white intermarriage. In this groundbreaking work of American history, author Andrew R. Graybill places the Marias Massacre within a larger three-generational family saga of the Clarke family during the fur trade era. By turns gripping and heartbreaking, their unknown story illuminates the complex history of native-white intermarriage in the American Northwest, with particular attention to the mixed-blood children of such unions, "peoples-in-between," who struggled to negotiate the shifting grounds of race in nineteenth-and early twentieth-century America. A masterful treatment, this is family history, ethnohistory, and narrative history of the highest order. A must have for history buffs. Illustrated throughout with maps and b/w historical and family photos. Hardbound w/dustjacket: 339 pages: 6.25 x 9.5"
