The War in Words: Reading the U.S.-Dakota Conflict through the Captivity Literature

My monograph examines twenty-four key captivity narratives by whites, metis, and full bloods about the 1862 U.S.-Dakota Conflict. Literary critics have paid very little attention to the narratives of this war, which one historian calls 'the other Civil War.' The significance of my chosen accounts is their cultural inclusiveness and their aesthetic value. Together, they show competing views of this complex war and the variety of generic forms the captivity narrative encompasses.
