About this Item

Black cloth with leather spine & corners and original cover laid on, professionally rebound w/marbled endpapers, 157 pp., frontis of McCorkle, 10 plates. Black box. Last page appears to be a copy. McCorkle formed part of Rassieuer's Regt., Raines' Division, 7th Missouri Cavalry. He was captured at Wilson's Creek & his experiences as a prisoner in Missouri are true indicators of the hatred between the North & South on the border. After trying to live in peace in Jackson Cty., Missouri, he found the prejudice unbearable and joined Quantrell at Independence & left an impressive record of his services. His recollections of Quantrell, Cole Younger, George Todd, and others make this one of the best books on guerilla operations in the West. Nevins I, 125: "One of the best sources on Quantrell, though McCorkle sometimes described too vividly events to which he was not a witness." Adams Six-Guns # 160. No date, probably 1914. Owner's inscription on fly date 1919. Bookseller Inventory # 023191
