"Regardless of differences in historical interpretation, few will doubt Harring's conclusions. He has shed insights into nineteenth century tribal legal processes, and that alone is a worthy contribution to legal scholarship of nineteenth century Native American history and he accomplished that task by writing an informative, questioning story." Richmond L. Clow, Great Plains Research "...a trenchant reminder of the absolutely central role that history--for better or worse--plays in the enterprise of Indian Law." Frank Pommersheim, Journal of American History "...provides a valuable foundation for understanding the complexities of the legal relationship between the federal government and Indian tribes...Harring's work shows what a rich field of study this can be." Raymond J. DeMallie, Indiana Magazine of History
