What they said about the first edition:

"[The Indian Frontier of the American West, 1846-1890] provides an excellent synthesis of Indian-white relations in the trans-Mississippi West during the last half-century of the frontier period."--Journal of American History

"The Indian Frontier of the American West combines good writing, solid research, and penetrating interpretations. The result is a fresh and welcome study that departs from the soldier-chases-Indian approach that is all too typical of other books on the topic."--Minnesota History

"[Robert M. Utley] has carefully eschewed sensationalism and glib oversimplification in favor of critical appraisal, and his firm command of some of the best published research of others provides a solid foundation for his basic argument that Indian hostility in the half century following the Mexican War was directed less at the white man per se than at the hated reservation system itself."--Pacific Historical Review

“The Indian Frontier: 1846 – 1890” by Robert Utley

This book is one of the ones that established Utley as one of the premier historians addressing the American scene of the 18th and 19th centuries in general and the Native American/White relations of that era specifically. To make a long story short,. This book is still one of the most thoughtful, insightful and cut-to-the-chase objective treatises on the American Indian and their experiences with the American Whites during the last 50 years of truly traditional Indian existence. It is VERY GOOD !!!
HOWEVER... This book – published in 1984 - is substantially the same as Utley's 1973 tome titled “Frontier Regulars”. In fact, many passages here were lifted word-for-word from “Frontier Regulars”. Both books are good reads.

Utley makes a real effort here to make sense of the sad history of Native American-Euroamerican relations; he does so with balance and understanding toward all concerned. He presents a solid and understandable account -- or rather, multiple interwoven accounts -- of the diplomatic, political, and military aspects of the indigenous/immigrant relationship, and helps the reader understand the background for the strange zigs and zags that U.S. government policy toward Indian tribes has taken over the years.

The book was in excellent condition, barely used. The content provided a good summary of Indian culture in the desired period. Great value!

There is interesting information here for folks that want an overview of the Indian Wars period, but not a lot of detail if you, like me, need detailed historical information. It's easier to read than "Frontier Regulars" by the same author but not as detailed.

Robert Utley was long a leading historian for the National Park Service, making major contributions to our understanding of the stories around many national historic sites on the Great Plains. He began work in the 1950s, as a very traditional historian of US military history in the Indian Wars. Fortunately, he has changed with the times. The new preface to this book outlines some of the ways in which he has changed, though I wish he would change even more. This book treats both the US and the Indian sides with respect, though Utley never confronts the core inequity of Euro-American invasion; after all, Native Americans didn't invade Europe. While he's balanced in treating the campaigns and battles, imbalance in that big picture provides more subtle bias throughout the book.

Utley tries to cover the entire "frontier" (a term he uses advisedly), including brief mentions of Alaskan Natives but not Hawai'ians. He discusses the more exceptional cases of Indian Territory / Oklahoma, Alaska, and the Pueblos against the background of the conflict on the Great Plains. California gets minor treatment, Oregon and Washington almost none.

As you'd expect from this capsule, the book tries to cover a lot of material in less than 250 pages, with a lot of photographs. As a result, it doesn't go into much depth. It provides a good factual overview, and a good introduction to the history. Many of the chapters have some analytical paragraphs at their start and end, but this interpretive material should have been strengthened throughout the book.

Utley is a retired Historian of the National Park Service and has written many books on a variety of aspects of history of the American West. This one is a concise study which departs from the soldier-chase-Indian approach that is so typical of other books on this topic. He does not join in the applause and praise of the achievements of the White man, nor does he glorify the Indians. So he must have a rather balanced judgment on events.
He has the interesting perception that the growing Indian hostility towards the white man in the half century following the Mexican War was directed less at the white man per se than at the hated reservation system itself. I visited some of the historic sites (Apache Pass, Cochise Stronghold, Little Big Horn etc) and found that self-critical perspective even written on sign boards. But, although a wide variety literature is available, the common credo and documentation is still a little backward and should be adapted to a less patriotic view. This is true for this book.
Beyond the dedication to "conquest by kindness", after the kid had already fallen into the well, most of the aims of the Peace Policy in Indian wars times were hardly original. For years reformers and policy makers had called for "concentration" of the Indians on reservations, for their "civilization" through education, Christianity, and agricultural self-support, for a cleansing of the Indian Bureau of corruption and inefficiency, and for replacement of the treaty system with something better suited to the actual status of the Indian. The chief mistake was that too late the white people accepted the Indians as citizens with - at least - the same rights. Too long they were treated as non-humans with no rights at all. No sooner as the last revolting Indians - the Apaches - were pacified, it was detected that they deserved human rights application. But it was too late. It was already in the end of the 19th century.
The Indian Frontiers can be seen as essentially closed by 1890. For the Indians, however, the legacy of the frontier period endured through the first three decades of the twentieth century and, in many respects, even beyond. The conquest of the West is seen as an explanation for Americas uniqueness. But is it not more wise to think that the cultural cross-fertilization that occurred first in the frontier zones and later in an America that welcomed and encouraged the cultural, spiritual, political and economic revival of the Indians and increasingly recognized their rich contributions to American life explains the American uniqueness better? "Modern America became...a blend of its immigrant and native heritages."
