On the Border with Crook
After serving over fifteen years (1870-1886) with General George Crook, Bourke sat down to write this memoir of his hero. He brings to life the frontier, the plains, and the Southwest -- as well as Native American heroes Sitting Bull, Crazy Horse, and Geronimo.

A fascinating recapitulation of the federal government's longstanding inept policy to deali with a minority culture. Same old, same old--if they ain't one of us, kill 'em all.
