493pp/illus/map. At Mountain Meadows on Sept. 11, 1857, local settlers and Paiute warriors waylaid the Fancher party, a wagon train bound from Arkansas to California. Pinned down in a circle of wagons in a remote corner of southwestern Utah the 70 men and women and 70 children fought for their lives for five days. Then under a promise of safe conduct they surrendered to the Mormon militia and their Indian allies. As they were escorted away from their wagons all were murdered except seventeen children under the age of seven. Clean. N° de ref. de la librería 009639
