The story of volunteer troops who served in the West during the Civil War. A standard in the field, written in clear and engaging prose. Born near Sacramento, Aurora Hunt (1881-1965) attended the University of California at Los Angeles, where she developed a keen interest in the military history of the West. She later studied under prominent Western historian Henry E Bolton, who encouraged her to write several outstanding books on southwestern history. The Arthur H Clark Company published The Army of the Pacific as the first volume in its distinguished Frontier Military series. Hunt based her study largely on primary sources, particularly rare territorial newspapers.
