NANCY OSWALD. Edward Wynkoop: Soldier and Indian Agent. Filter Press. Trade paperback, 70 pages, $8.95, FilterPressBooks.com.

Young readers will be educated and enlightened by this Spur Award winning biography of Ned Wynkoop. Wynkoop served as Denver’s first sheriff, as a Civil War soldier with the Colorado Volunteers, then as a negotiator, defender, spokesman and agent for Plains Indians. Wynkoop became most vocal, and most unpopular, after the tragic Sand Creek Massacre, when he protested mightily against Colonel John Chivington’s flagrant actions against the Cheyenne and Arapaho.
