"Hang Them All: George Wright and the Plateau Indian War" tells of Colonel Wright’s 1848 campaign against the Yakima, Spokane, Coeur d’Alene, Palouse, and other local Indian peoples. Today, many critics view his actions as war crimes, but among white settlers and politicians of the time, Wright was a patriotic hero who helped open the Inland Northwest to settlement. This book explores the controversy surrounding his legacy.
