"Simmons movingly and accurately relates this human tragedy [of modern Ute history] even into the cultural revitalization movements of recent times."

"This book is highly recommended for anyone interested in the Utes, their historic homeland, and the regional history of Utah, Colorado, and New Mexico."
—Colonial Latin American Historical Review

"Sure to become a standard reference."
New Mexico Magazine


Using government documents, archives, and local histories, Simmons has painstakingly separated the often repeated and often incorrect hearsay from more accurate accounts of the Ute Indians.


Virginia McConnell Simmons is the author of The Ute Indians of Utah, Colorado, and New Mexico (UPC), The San Luis Valley: Land of the Six-Armed Cross (UPC), and Bayou Salado (UPC), as well as hundreds of articles for journals, magazines, and newspapers.
