I found this book, published by Scribner's & Sons, NY, and written in 1902, in my mother's book collection when she died. I have just finished it and found it very interesting, intriguing, and full of action. It is about his love of honor, needing to prove himself, fighting in Honduras, and continuing to love the idea of proving his honor.
This book is written in the 1st person but there is nothing in the book to say that these are His own memoirs and I've done no research and know nothing of the author.
