Booknews
With separate sections on the US cavalry, the Plains Indians, and the Apaches, this volume offers details about the participants in the wars played out across the American frontier in the latter half of the 19th century. Only a small part of the book describes actual campaigns or battles. In the case of the cavalry, details are presented about training, uniforms and equipment, weapons, tactics, and the treatment of wounds and sickness. For the Native American participants, discussion is provided on ways of life, the introduction of the horse, and religious ceremony. Numerous photographs and illustrations are included. Annotation c.
