With that simple statement, the Great Sioux Uprising of 1862 began. When they exploded, they sent up a lethal spray of hot metal in every direction, killing and maiming with horrifying ease. Financial Pressures on the Sioux. The origins of the uprising could be traced to a series of ill-advised treaties the Indians had signed in the 1850s. Lieutenant Sheehan had left for Fort Ripley, located on the Mississippi River, the day before. A messenger was quickly dispatched urging Sheehan to return immediately. The Indians rushed the western corner of the fort, but were stopped cold when Jones and his 6-pounder crew shot their gun off at point-blank range.

Once the uprising was suppressed, 303 Sioux warriors were sentenced to death. The people of Minnesota called for their immediate execution, a sentiment that matched the national mood. The remainder were committed to life in prison.

On August 18, 1862, after decades of maltreatment at the hands of government overseers and white settlers, hundreds of Sioux (Dakota) warriors under the reluctant leadership of Taoyateduta, the Little Crow, broke out from their reservation and slaughtered over 500 whites and half-breeds in a two-month reign of terror that depopulated much of the southern half of Minnesota, and left dozens of native raiders hanging from a common gallows. One of the braves’ first targets was Ft. Ridgely, a lightly-defended garrison that stood between the marauders and the state capitol of St. Paul. With its commandant slain in an ambush the first day of the uprising, command of the fort during a nine-day siege fell to 1st. Lt. Timothy J. Sheehan, a 26-year-old Irish immigrant whose initial sympathies covered red man as well as white. This is his story. Relying on historical documents and family records, Dogs in the Hot Moon brings to life the plight of the Dakota nation at that time, the brutality of the massacre that was finally ignited over a pair of brown chicken eggs, and the struggle of the young state’s white leadership to contain the uprising in the face of Union demands for soldiers to quell the Rebellion in the south. Times, dates and places and events are real, as are most of the persons named. Copy that is italicized throughout the book is taken verbatim from the historical record. Timothy J. Sheehan went on to become a brevetted Colonel in the Union Army, a Civil War veteran, county sheriff, deputy marshal and Indian agent, wounded seven times, the last at age 61. He died in St. Paul, Minnesota in 1913, at the age of 78.

Most excellent.

Interesting! Interesting!! Interesting!!
Mr. Sheehan's book is an exciting read, thoroughly researched and very well written. It has a historic, real-time feeling that comes directly from his great-grandfather, through him and onto the pages, totally capturing the feeling of that event in history in an even-handed accounting of both sides. I am eagerly awaiting his next book, whatever the subject.

I can highly recommend "Dogs in the Hot Moon" by Michael Sheehan. The book is beautifully written and it is immediately obvious that Sheehan has spent lots of time researching historical documents. As an Anthropologist by trade, I applaud Sheehan's ability to create a captivating story using a real person, his grandfather, combined with historic documents and facts. His book is sensitively written with compassion for both, the white and the Native American side of history unfortunately little told. The reader will find him/herself easily transported back to the late 18 hundreds and the struggle of the early settlers and the Native Americans. Even though one would think Sheehan is biased as it is the story of his grandfather, the reader will soon realize that Sheehan manages to describe the side of the Sioux with equal compassion and insight.

Not only was this book well researched and a good read, I also appreciated the way the author presented different points of view of the people involved. It gave me a three dimensional picture of the times and the people.

As the great grandson of his protagonist, author Michael Sheehan had both motivation and the method to learn about his famous forebear, but it is his willingness to share the detail with us that has earned my gratitude. Like slavery, the US dealings with native Americans raises many important questions in today's society, and the author offers a carefully crafted handling of the main issues. There is little question that the Sioux over-reacted in their bloody rampages, but Author Sheehan reaches deep into the soul of the Sioux to aid his audience in understanding the perspective we seldom see. It is a refreshing storyline because of that balance. The research makes this story come alive - the reader is caught up in the stresses of all parties - the Sioux hunger is painful and the Bluecoat nervousness palpable. I could not put the book down, and read the last half in an all-day marathon, spurred on by the edge-of-seat excitement I felt, waiting for the annuities to arrive, wondering if the young Sioux warriors would rebel, and responding to the heat of mortal combat. Dogs in the Hot Moon is an important history lesson wrapped up in a deliciously entertaining story. Now I am waiting to see the movie version - what an opportunity.
