Requiem for a People: Th. Pretty much the complete story of the "Rogue Indian Wars,"Beckham probably has gleaned most all the extant history of this era and pulls no punches to report the genocide by Oregon's Jackson, and Josephine County white pioneers on the Indians (the Yreka,CA miners, hands are bloody too). Virtually all of this happened before the civil war, the atrocities mostly were not committed by the US Army, but rather, miners and land grabbers. The crimes against humanity here were lauded throughout the Territory at the time however.

Condition: Very Good. Requiem for a People. com User, May 17, 2000. Beckham has done more to understand the history of the Indian people of the Oregon coast than any other author. I grew up in the Rogue Valley and in fact my family homesteaded there, although they began a couple of decades after the natives had been displaced to reservations. As a member of the Coos tribe, I am grateful for his attention to a history which not only very few non-Indians but also Indian people are aware.

Urling Coe came to the new town of Bend, Oregon, in 1905, a young medical school graduate seeking adventure and opportunity in the West. His memoir also documents the development of a western town: with the arrival of the railroad in 1911, the wide-open settlement known as Farewell Bend was transformed into an important metropolitan center.

Pretty much the complete story of the "Rogue Indian Wars,"Beckham probably has gleaned most all the extant history of this era and pulls no punches to report the genocide by Oregon's Jackson, and Josephine County white pioneers on the Indians (the Yreka,CA miners, hands are bloody too). Virtually all of this happened before the civil war, the atrocities mostly were not committed by the US Army, but rather, miners and land grabbers. The crimes against humanity here were lauded throughout the Territory at the time however. There is simply little reportage of the perspective of the Indians themselves, as they were all removed to other parts of Oregon, making the genocide complete and final for Southern Oregon. The few Native Americans that survived, were assimilated into other tribes.

Very informative, no complaints, t'was perfect, especially considering how little public info there is on this subject. And also considering the era of time in which it was published.

There exists a plethora of books regarding the conquest of the Native American Indian but sadly few are so scrupulously evidenced by the DEEP, DETAILED research of this volume. Native Americans believed (Mother) Earth and all ON, WITHIN AND ABOUT it was provided to them by "THE GREAT SPIRIT"(The FATHER) alone and that they were to USE, RESPECT AND CARE for it with responsible continuing attention, as SHE provide for their sustenance! European settlers to America, simply-stated, believed that if they claimed what they were on, such was theirs! European immigrant peoples in this Country's early years brought with them the CONCEPT of LAND OWNERSHIP. The inherent conflict explains much behind the 'demonization' and subsequently, justified(?) the many battles which propelled the desired, near-extinction of Native American peoples at, literally, the point of the 'long-gun'! by early settlers, buffalo-hide hunters, gold-miners, greedy- money-hungry LAND SPECULATORS and eventually, the Federal Government's mighty military forces, urged on by the aforementioned, who lobbied Federal and State politicians to enforce their goals! Strangely,and not least of which, was the Federal response of dispatching an ALL BLACK CAVALRY, namely the 10th U.S. Cavalry disingenuously called, "THE BUFFALO SOLDIERS" who were sent forthwith, to the 'GREAT PLAINS'; (COLOR AGAINST COLOR(?))! The suppression of the Indian was not just seldom, BRUTAL, RELENTLESS and MERCILESS sparing neither women nor children, oftentimes encamped in tipis and still a-slumber therein. while the men were foraging or hunting for food. Internalizing that European concept of land ownership was not even understood by them no less ever accepted by Native American. The RESULT: they fought 'the invader' fiercely and with signal bravery against fierce odds and with weapons which by no means, had the destructive power of the invaders. Today, the remaining Native Americans exist on lands assigned them by the Federal Government, not uncommonly, isolated by great distances from civilization and they remain, the most neglected, isolated and impoverished people of the United States. This author meticulously researched and documented the HISTORY of these Brave, Proud inhabitants of the land now known as the USA. This volume is truly that of a serious scholar and stands as a 'tour de force' and 'labor of love' for true history. It was truly 'bittersweet' for me to come to the last pages of the book which couldn't be recommended more genuinely. I WILL be reading it again for all which I may have given sufficient attention; and it is so well-written, as an added bonus.

This is a well researched book describing the destruction of cultures and peoples along the coast and the Rogue River. It is part of a trilogy of books that are a must-read to fully comprehend the elimination of the native peoples from the area: The Rogue River Indian War and its Aftermath, 1850 to 1980 (by Schwartz) and Uncertain Encounters (by Douthit). These three books together make for a complete understanding of the tragedy of Southern Oregon.

Professor Beckham's presents a terse and lucid account of the displacement of the natives of the Rogue Valley and surrounding areas. I grew up in the Rogue Valley and in fact my family homesteaded there, although they began a couple of decades after the natives had been displaced to reservations. I wish very much that this book had been required reading in my high school, because we were raised to be essentially blind to the melancholy history of our area.
The book is essentially a scholarly memoir, with extensive footnoting for anyone wanting to find more detail in the historical record. Yet, the writing is accessible and vivid. This is a highly recommended read.
