A fascinating personal account of three decades in the Wild West written by a professional US army officer, covering the years 1833 to the 1860s. The author describes his experiences of a wide range of peoples – including the Commanche and other Plains Indian tribes – the opening up of new territories across the Rocky Mountains; the hunting of bears and buffalo and a hostile account of the Mormons led by BRigham Young to their promised land in Utah. AN unvarnished but vivid personal account by a pioneer of the West in its wildest years, this book must not be missed by anyone interested in an exciting subject.
