Booknews
Burton (Director of Minority Affairs, Columbia College-Chicago) looks at the adventures of African American men who were scouts and soldiers on the US western frontier during the 19th and 20th centuries. He bypasses the racial hostilities they endured in frontier towns, well covered by other books, and instead concentrates on military incidents involving black soldiers and desperadoes, as well as certain critical military engagements in which they made important military contributions. Includes b&w historical photos. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
