Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
These two budget hardcovers from Castle go behind the myths of American history. Carter traces Cody from his alleged life-and-death adventures as a Pony Express rider, Indian fighter, and Civil War cavalry scout to his metamorphosis into a fabricated carney showman that made him famous. Commager and Morris put forth a chronological eyewitness account of the American Revolution through letters, journals, diaries, diplomatic correspondence, and numerous other resources.

This is a book you can pick up and read and put down and come beack to again and again. There is really no bias in this book, no revisionist history being rewritten. These are personal letters, speaches, and papers of the actual participants of the Revolution. From privates to generals in both the Continental and British Armies to the Politicians on both sides to just letters people write to each other about their eyewitness accounts of events.
