Description "Oh, no; the Indians are perfectly friendly now." "How long is it since they harmed any one belonging to your settlement?" "Well," she answered, tranquilly, "no one to speak of, these three months, and then it was only one man-Brother Hart- who was out alone, against counsel. It was last October. He went up the canon to haul down some firewood, taking his little boy along. The valley is very narrow, and in some places rocks overhang the road. The Indians fired right down upon him.

It lasted from 1865-68 and resulted in the death of fifty whites and the abandonment of many Utah settlements. It is related in all the standard books on Utah history.
