Book Synopsis



Henry Lafayette Dodge has long been a familiar name in 19th century American Southwestern history. As one of the earliest and most effective Indian agents to the Navajo, he has been portrayed as a congenial, sympathetic and compassionate advocate for the tribe-a veritable role model. The Navajo knew him as Red Shirt, a man they came to respect, appreciate and trust. Those who knew Dodge admitted, although often grudgingly, that he had unrivaled influence over the tribe. By today's sensibilities, Henry L. Dodge was hardly a role model. In his youth, he was irresponsible, hot-headed and violent. As an adult, he was sued for assault and battery, land fraud, breach of promises and misuse of public funds. He apparently couldn't be trusted with money, his own or others'. Finally brought down by scandal, he fled Wisconsin in the dead of night, abandoning his career, his wife and his children, leaving them nearly destitute. How then should history assess him? Honestly: precisely as he was, an ambitious and imperfect man. The honest telling gives a straightforward account of not only Henry L. Dodge, but what became the veritable mythology of the West, from the bawdy old French Missouri river towns to the raucous lead mining districts of southwest Wisconsin, through the slaughter of the war to the invasion of New Mexico and the chaos of the Indian frontier; it is a gritty personal tale of the true West. LAWRENCE D. SUNDBERG was born on June 19, 1952. From an early age he was fascinated with the peoples, lands and cultures of Arizona and New Mexico. After earning a BA in Anthropology and elementary teacher certification, he taught fourth and fifth grades on the Navajo reservation for eighteen years, during which time he wrote "Dinetah, An Early History of the Navajo People," published by Sunstone Press of Santa Fe. He presently lives in Albuquerque, New Mexico and teaches English as a Second Language to adult refugees and immigrants for Catholic Charities of New Mexico.
