Second Opinion Pop-Up

The Second Opinion Pop-Up group will discuss The Earth Is Weeping: The Epic Story of the Indian Wars for the American West by Peter Cozzens (Vintage, $20.00). In The Earth Is Weeping, Cozzens explores the wars and negotiations that destroyed tribal ways of life even as they made possible the emergence of the modern United States, giving us both sides in comprehensive and singularly intimate detail. He illuminates the encroachment experienced by the tribes and the tribal conflicts over whether to fight or make peace and explores the lives of soldiers posted to the frontier and the ethical quandaries faced by generals who often sympathized with their native enemies.
