"With the publication of Wilson's Creek, Pea Ridge, and Prairie Grove, at long last we have a superb publication that fills the travel void for Civil War buffs, scholars, school teachers, college professors, touring groups, and military staff rides. . . . [It] is simply a ''must read'' and an excellent ''traveling companion'' for anyone who plans to visit these battlefields or has an interest in the Civil War."
—Arnold Schofield, Kansas History
Daniel E. Sutherland
"This is the only practical guide to three of the most important Civil War battle sites west of the Mississippi River. Wilson's Creek, Pea Ridge, and Prairie Grove will, therefore, fill an embarrassing void in our practical knowledge of the war, provide a better understanding of the three battles, enhance our ability to analyze early military strategy in the West, and promote a deeper appreciation of the trans-Mississsippi war."
—Daniel E. Sutherland, author of Seasons of War: The Ordeal of a Confederate Community, 1861–1865
