"In Northern Paiutes of the Malheur, David H. Wilson Jr. recounts the epic story of settler colonialism and protracted periods of warfare between Northern Paiutes and White settlers in the Oregon Country from the early 1850's to the Indian New Deal in the 1930s. The engaging narrative of Northern Paiute survivance in the face of 19th-Century war, population decline, and eventual tribal resurgence is a tale of resistance, adaptation, and tribal strategies to retain land and sovereignty"-- Provided by publisher.
