I, too, have read Michno's book, "Dakota Dawn", and found it to be a most interesting read. It has finally dealt with stories of the settlers of Minnesota who were here during this tragic event. However, my family's story was not correct and they were all "killed off". I wonder if there were others incorrectly told. I hope that the 150th anniversary resparks interest and that more books will be published telling more about the families who lived through this, what happened to them. Most books written thus far, have been Dakota centered or military centered...what about the settlers? What about the honest traders? What about the friendly Dakota? We need to hear these stories too.

I am in complete agreement of this writer's opinion of Michno's book. It was the first time I had seen a settler map that defined where my ancestors lived. I found my Cla(u)sen family homestead on one of his maps in Birch Coulie. This book reads like a historical novel and I highly recommend it.
