From Fort Laramie to Wounded Knee - Book
"Allen's work is a lively account of his life and contemporary events from early years in Dakota Territory during the 1870's to the tragic day at Wounded Knee. Those interested will find here an early and detailed description of the Lakota Ghost Dance and a first hand account of the confusion and violence of 29 December 1890. Allen's personal connections to the Pine Ridge community through his mixed-blood wife, his skills as a journalist and his evident effort to recount those events judiciously make his observations even more valuable." ~Western Historical Quarterly
"From Fort Laramie to Wounded Knee is an insightful, accurate and fascinating account of the extreme frontier of the Middle West from the Fort Laramie Treaty in 1868 to the Wounded Knee incident in 1890. Cahrles W. Allen's historical retrospective, written in 1938, is divided into twenty-seven diary like vignettes that give readers a true taste (bitter and sweet) of life on a changing frontier."
