"[The Cheyenne and Arapaho Ordeal] is thoroughly researched and documented and extremely valuable for the light it throws on the reservation life of the Indians in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century, when the government, following the appeals of Christian humanitarian reform groups, decreed the Americanization and assimilation of the Indians."-New Mexico Historical Review.
"As Berthrong aptly demonstrates, hunger, despair, disease, and lethargy dominated the Indians' lives during the reservation years. An inactive and inept Congress continually failed to appropriate the necessary funds requested by the Department of Interior to care for these Indians. . . . Berthrong has written a thoroughly documented, readable, and compassionate account."-North Dakota History.
