9780857066077: On the Border with Crook: Personal Recollections of the American Indian Wars by an Officer on General Crook's Staff

Eyewitness to the Indian Wars

The author of this book, Captain John Bourke, served on Crook's staff for sixteen years between 1870-86. This put him in an ideal position to witness campaigns against the Indian tribes on the Western Plains, waged by the United States Army under the command of a general who was described by Sherman as 'the greatest Indian fighter the army ever had.' Bourke proved not only to be an excellent cavalry officer, but also a man with a keen sense of history and a fine talent for observation. As a consequence, this book is regarded as one of the best books of Western history ever published and is now recognised as a classic by those interested in the subject. Bourke takes his readers on iconic campaigns and enables them to share his experience in the company of an eyewitness. Excitingly related here are tales of memorable exploits on the Great Plains and against the Apaches, with famous tribes and great men such as Geronimo, Sitting Bull and Crazy Horse.
