About the Author

Andrew E. Masich is President and CEO of the Smithsonian-affiliated Senator John Heinz History Center and teaches history at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh. He is author of The Civil War in Arizona: The Story of the California Volunteers, 1861-1865 and coauthor of Cheyenne Dog Soldiers: A Ledgerbook History of Coups and Combat and Halfbreed: The Remarkable True Story of George Bent.


Sweeping in scale yet finely grained, the story Andrew Masich delivers here is a convincing new way of thinking about the 'civil wars' that devastated the Southwest Borderlands between 1861 and 1867. Indians, Hispanos, and Anglos waged war within and across ethnic divisions amid a swirl of strategies and tactics that produced a landscape of violence. Beyond re-creating the stench of sweat, the urgent song of swift arrows, and the concussion of field artillery, Masich underscores the bloody ironies of 'pacification' and political incorporation. A masterful storyteller, Masich has quickened a deserving story."" - James F. Brooks, author of Captives and Cousins: Slavery, Kinship, and Community in the Southwest Borderlands, and Mesa of Sorrows: A History of the Awat'ovi Massacre.

""Civil War in the Southwest Borderlands is a landmark achievement, sure to prompt a rethinking of the transnational dimensions of the Civil War in the Far West and the unprecedented violence of those years. For scholars and general readers alike, this is a rare and welcome book."" - David Fridtjof Halaas, former Colorado State Historian and consultant to the Northern Cheyenne Tribe

""Andrew Masich presents a sweeping history of the violence that inflamed the Southwest Borderlands in the mid-1860s. Anglos, Indians, and Hispanics, all engaged in what Masich terms civil wars. This is impressive scholarship: deeply researched, eminently readable, and rich in detail and interpretation."" - Robert M. Utley, author of The Indian Frontier, 1846 - 1890|""This outstanding book sets the new benchmark for an understanding of the Civil War in the Southwestern borderlands."" - Pacific Historical Review
