ticularly interesting is the commentary on the Indian refugees
in Texas. Conditioned by the more recent experiences of dis-
placed persons in World War II, one is here struck by the re-
curring patterns that war manifests.
Because it is apparent that the writer has aimed at producing
a book with popular appeal, which he has done, it would perhaps
be unfair to subject his study to the same critical analysis that
would be in order for such related statements as Annie Heloise
Abel's definitive studies of the American Indian in the Civil War.
Nevertheless, it is necessary that attention should be drawn to
the paucity of documentation, and a word is also in order in re-
lation to certain mechanical errors that crept into the copy and
survived the printing process. The most interesting and puzzling
occurs on page 218 where the following entry appears: War of
the Rebellion (The): A Complication of the Official Records of
the Union and Confederate Armies.
Despite the mild criticisms raised, the subject of General Stand
Watie's Confederate Indians is quite fascinating, and the treat-
ment no doubt will be satisfying to a large number of readers.
