Poetry. Native American Studies. "Charles Squier's masterfully lean and fast-moving verse narrative vividly evokes the characters and motives convergent in one of the nation's most unforgivable chapters, the Sand Creek massacre. Rarely, if ever, has any episode in that slow holocaust called 'the winning of the West' been revealed with such moving understated irony. The verse line of UNDER THE WHITE WING is clean, muscular, and mercifully free of the falsely 'poetikal.' Its illumination of the barbarism which in the American West once passed for civilization places Squier's poem among the best of its genre"—Reg Saner, author of Reaching Keet Seel: Ruin's Echo and the Anasazie.
