He previously served as a museum director in Arizona and Colorado and is the coauthor of two books, Cheyenne Dog Soldiers: A Ledgerbook History of Coups and Combat and Halfbreed: The Remarkable True Story of George Bent.Review:
"Riveting--a provocative study of human conflict and development that is both relevant and exceedingly well written." -- Civil War Book Review
"...a valuable study of the California volunteers' service in Arizona during the Civil War." -- Blue & Gray Magazine
"...an excellent history of a neglected topic and will be of especial interest to students of the Civil War in the West and Western history in general." -- The Civil War News
"Would that all histories could blend source materials with historical reviews so smoothly! The letters clearly depict conditions, experiences and observations, while the survey provides needed background for those without extensive Civil War history behind them." -- The Midwest Book Review
