Fort Reno Press Reviews

Informative and readable. ... Hoig places the history of Fort Reno in the context of significant topics of American westward expansion: Indian wars, United States-Indian relations, cattle drives, railroads, white settlement, and the Oklahoma land rushes. Numerous maps, photographs, and illustrations augment his skillful narrative. A comprehensive, yet easy to read account. . . . His stories of Indian chiefs, Boomers and Sooners, dedicated missionaries and gala Fourth of July horse races paint a vivid mural of the robust years of Fort Reno and what would someday become Oklahoma. --The Sunday Oklahoman Not only a good read, but a real contribution to military history. --True West Informative and readable. . . . Hoig places the history of Fort Reno in the context of significant topics of American westward expansion: Indian wars, Unisted States-Indian relations, cattle drives, railroads, white settlement, and the Oklahoma land rushes. Numerous maps, photographs, and illustrations augment his skillful narrative. --Montana: The Magazine of Western History Fort Reno participated in a series of major events that marked the end of the frontier era. . . Utilizing a vast array of manuscript collections, government documents, and other published sources, Hoig has crafted an exciting and accurate tale of Indian--white conflict and cooperation at the end of the 19th century. --Choice Magazine Hoig's insight is that Fort Reno can be seen as a kind of pivot for events between 1874 and the early twentieth century. It is not a pretty story, but it's an important and interesting one, and I think readers will find Hoig's telling of it valuable. --Elliott West, author of The Contested Plains An excellent account . . . an outstanding history of a western fort that dealt with many of the changes experienced in the American West. --Military History of the West
