Description
When appointed Washington’s first governor in 1853, Isaac Ingalls Stevens, an ambitious military man turned politician, had one goal—to persuade the Indians of the Puget Sound region to turn over their ancestral lands to the federal government, and in exchange be consigned to reservations unsuitable for sustaining their traditional lifestyle. The Pulitzer Prize–winning author of Ashes to Ashes and Seizing Destiny recounts the impact of Stevens’s program on the Nisqually tribe, whose chief, Leschi, sparked the native resistance movement. Determined to succeed at any cost, Governor Stevens would finally resort to deceit, violence, and even the American legal system to vanquish his foe.

"Meticulously researched, elegantly written and sophisticated, the book uses this all but forgotten episode in American history to give a human face to the injustices visited on Indians in treaty-making, on the battlefield and, surprisingly, in the courtroom."—Glenn C. Altschuler
