KIRKUS REVIEW

For the record, here are 17 chapters devoted to Indian and white wars of the 19th century -- of battles and skirmishes, ambushes and disasters, frontier characters and heroism of the plains. The hostility engendered by wrongs and outrages and the way in which it led to bloody events; stories of the forts, of rescues, of massacres; Red Cloud, Dull Knife, Crazy Horse and others; the Pony Express and the Pawnee Battalion; Jim Bridger, California Joe, Little Bat and Calamity Jane, among the scouts --they're all here from survivors' reminiscences and contemporary accounts. Frontiersmen, soldiers, civilians -- and Indians and the part they played in the expanding United States are presented by a newspaperman whose interest in their deeds and in western history is lively and sincere.
