Acclaimed author of Creek Mary's Blood, Killdeer Mountain, Hear That Lonesome Whistle Blow and the legendary Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee. In this book, Brown takes the reader into the Civil War period which he knows as well as he knows the Indian Wars and the taming of the West. Excerpt from the dj flap: Some people called it ""the Northwest Conspiracy,"" others referred to it as ""the Chicago Conspiracy."" But Belle Rutledge, perhaps the only person who knew the whole truth, called it a "conspiracy of knaves"; and there were, from the outset, "three sets of deceivers, each trying to flimflam the others." It was a bold plot, cooked up by Confederates and Copperheads (Northerners who sympathized with the Southern cause). If it worked, it would free Rebel soldiers held captive in Chicago and use them to force the Northwest Territories out of the Union., book and jacket in fine/as new condition
