For the purposes of this study, Northwest Kansas is defined as that area lying to the north and west of Saline County , Kansas. The area is bounded on the south by the northern boundaries of McPherson, Rice, Barton, Rush , Ness, Lane; Scott, Wichita and Greeley Counties . On the east it is bounded by the western boundaries of Dickinson , Clay, and Washington Counties. The area is bounded on the west by Colorado and on the north by Nebraska. One Indian battle described in the study, that of Forsyth's command on the Arickaree, occurred outside the defined area. This battle is included because of its close relation to the Indian difficulties in Northwest Kansas.
