About this Item

Fine condition 1st Edition/1st Printing hardcover in Very Good condition dust jacket. Book has no significant flaws. Spotless inside and out with sharp corners and no rub wear. Dust jacket is not clipped. It is lightly soiled and has a few small chips and tears along top and bottom edges, none of which exceed about 1/2". There is also a single 1/8" hole in the seam between back panel and inside rear flap. "This is the third and final volume in Dr. Wallace's series on the military campaigns of Colonel Ranald S. Mackenzie on the Texas frontier. It was mainly through the efforts of Mackenzie and his 4th Cavalry Regiment that the region's hostile Indians were subdued. The correspondence of this period (from June, 1873 to October 1879) gives insight into many dramatic events associated with Rio Grande border problems and the Red River War. Of special interest are the heretofore unpublished journals and reports relating to the climactic battle of Palo Duro Canyon and the subsequent slaughter of 1,048 horses captured from the Indians. Official reports of commanders of other military units involved in the Red River War are included to enable the reader to better understand Mackenzie's military operations. The correspondence also contains information relating to the harsh vicissitudes of weather, the scarcity of water, and the tribulations and fatique suffered by the troops as they battled a desperate people fighting for their old way of life." -- the publishers. We will bubble-wrap this scarce volume to protect its corners and ship it in a sturdy box to ensure safe delivery. Bookseller Inventory # ABP11
