Grasshoppers in Summer

(2008)
A novel by

 
 
"Grasshoppers in Summer tells the epic story of making and breaking the Fort Laramie Treaty of 1868 as seen through the eyes of opposing political, military, and tribal leaders. Relentless fraud, corruption, and cultural and political pressures frustrated President Grant's effort to reform Indian policy. A conspiracy of military, railroad, and mining interests destroyed the Fort Laramie Treaty, leading to the drumbeat of war. The plains tribes' last great victory at Greasy Grass would win the bitter spoils of total defeat. "They came from the land of the Great Father, as many as grasshoppers in summer. With them the spirits of the people were driven from the land.""--
