In 1832, facing white expansion, the Sauk warrior Black Hawk attempted to forge a pan-Indian alliance to preserve the homelands of the confederated Sauk and Fox tribes on the eastern bank of the Mississippi. Here, Patrick J. Jung re-examines the causes, course, and consequences of the ensuing war with the United States, a conflict that decimated Black Hawk's band. Correcting mistakes that plagued previous histories, and drawing on recent ethnohistorical interpretations, Jung shows that the outcome can be understood only by discussing the complexity of intertribal rivalry, military ineptitude, and racial dynamics.

He looked like a bad boy. Turns out, he was worse than I ever imagined. Violent, angry, a criminal, a killer. But when he stares me down, all I want is to submit to his darkest desires. Letting myself fall for him was the worst mistake I could have made. But how could I say no? He was sexy. He was dark.

But this one-way road might lead straight to hell. After all, Hawk isn’t the only one with shadows in his past. I’ve got demons, too. And just when it seems like I’ve finally escaped them, The bastards come roaring back into the picture. This time, they might not let me out alive. And they might damn Hawk to the grave with me.
