This novel is a re-write of "The Revenge of Little Crow" and tells the story of Minnesota's Sioux Uprising of 1862, and the subsequent execution by hanging at Mankato, MN of 38 Sioux warriors on December 26, 1862. This was the largest mass execution in United States history. Written by Steven M. Ulmen, a member of the Western Writers of America.

 Experience the drama of Minnesota's Sioux uprising of 1862, in which nearly 1,000 settlers were killed or wounded, an event that was largely overshadowed by the Civil War that raged in the South at the same time. March along with Col. Henry Sibley, the leader of the Indian Expedition, as battles are fought at New Ulm, Fort Ridgely, Birch Coulee, and Wood Lake. Explore hostile territory alongside Toby Ryker, chief scout of the Sixth Minnesota Regiment. Learn the Sioux point of view, and why they staged the uprising in the first place. Experience the defeat of Little Crow at Camp Release, and the surrender of his warriors and his hostages. Witness the brave Minnesota soldiers as they die on the battlefield, or in the infirmary at Fort Snelling, either at the hand of Little Crow, or as the result of Civil War action. Travel to Mankato, Minnesota, for the cold, December 26th hanging of 38 Sioux warriors in a mass execution seen by thousands of witnesses, the largest mass execution in the history of the United States. Visit the St. Paul boudoir of Big Faye Knutson, Ryker's Swedish girlfriend, whom he visits when on R & R from the army and when he wishes to escape the memories of the massacre, at least for a little while. The Revenge of Little Crow is told by the characters who witnessed the massacre and its tragic consequences, ordinary folks like you and me, both white and Indian, who cope with these horrors as best they know how. "Blood on the Prairie - A Novel of the Sioux Uprising" is written by Steven M. Ulmen, a member of the Western Writers of America.

Steven Ulmen is a master storyteller as evidenced by "The Revenge of Little Crow", his highly praised and self-published historical novel of the Great Sioux Uprising in Minnesota that took place in 1882. Now Ulmen has fine-tuned and re-edited that superb novel to make it even better. It has now been enhanced with respect to historical accuracy and published as "Blood On The Prairie: A Novel Of The Sioux Uprising". A novel of clashing cultures fought out in the closing decades of the 19th century, this is western historical fiction at its best and recommended for personal reading lists and community library collections.

Johnny Boggs Endorsement
"Steven M. Ulmen deftly blends elements of the traditional western novel with sound historical research to create a fast-moving and and strikingly rich account of one of the West's most overlooked events: the 1862 Sioux Uprising in Minnesota." Johnny D. Boggs, three-time Spur Award winning author of NORTHFIELD and CAMP FORD.
