    This was a very good, straightforward account of what was one of the brutal episodes between white folks in American history.


  2. says:

    I don t understand why these stories aren t widely known I think Goodrich did a great job of being even handed.


  3. says:

    This short and lively book is an excellent introduction to the Kansas Missouri border war that raged during the Civil War and the scorched earth policies perpetuated by both sides Goodrich s sympathies seemed to lie with western Missouri and their troubles with Jayhawkers and Redlegs than with the people of Kansas, and I m interested to see what biases play out in other books on the subject My interest has been piqued.

    Little known history of the vicious war between the border states of Missouri and Kansas prior to and during the civil war Paints the background for better under standing Jesse James by T J Stiles see my review.


  5. says:

    This isn t a book It s a collection of block quotes and no interpretation And really, you can t base sweeping generalizations on one quote from one newspaperand if that s not what this author did, he certainly failed to make it clear.Crap I m surprised a university press released this.


  6. says:

    Once again, in a guerilla war everyone loses Murder, rape, arson, theft you name it, it all happened in western MO and eastern Kansas prior to and during the Civil War Lots of reports from participants are included.


  7. says:
