Spring titles of interest: Birch Coulee and a captivity narrative

Regular readers know that I rarely miss the opportunity to mention upcoming books dealing with the 1862-65 Dakota War. Next spring, University of Nebraska imprint Bison Books will publish the first book length treatment of the Battle of Birch Coulee. John Christgau's Birch Coulie: The Epic Battle of the Dakota War [not sure where that spelling of coulee comes from, even the cover art print takes issue with it] is planned for March, while Nebraska's new edition of a once-printed classic  A Thrilling Narrative of Indian Captivity: Dispatches from the Dakota War will follow a few months later.
