My Life On The Plains
Anyone interested in the West during the mid 1800's will enjoy this book. Personally, I like the first person feel of Custer's style. He tells the reader what problems were encountered and how they were dealt with. Curiously, the political situation of his time, concerning Washington, DC is not very different from today.
He relates day to day activity of troop movements, consideration for animal forage, dealing with Indians that are not happy with the invasion of the white men, problems of troop retention,their morale, and how to deal with deserters, difficulty protecting isolated ranches.
You and I deal with possible traffic tie ups. He deals with the possibility of supply trains being looted and settlers being killed or "outraged".
I found it an interesting read.
