Campaigning with Crook by Charles King( Book )

2 editions published in 1964 in Undetermined and English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Big Horn and Yellowstone Expedition in 1876 was successful in scattering the united and victorious Indians of the Custer massacre. Commanded by General George Crook and covering 800 miles in ten weeks, the campaign was a hard one on Indians and soldiers alike. Before it ended, many of the cavalrymen were walking-- their horses had either died or were killed for food. The Indians had their problems too. The earlier Rosebud and Custer fights had expended much of their ammunition, their own scorched-earth tactics had destroyed much of their grazing land, and they were pressed so hard by Crook they had little opportunity to hunt. The story of this campaign is vividly told by Charles King, adjutant of General Merritt's Fifth Cavalry. King's account presents the soldier's point of view and covers the activities of the Fifth Cavalry before joining Crook's force, including the fight on the War Bonnet and Buffalo Bill Cody's famous fight with Yellow Hand. King's book presents an articulate and detailed picture of the dangers and privations of Indian campaigning at its toughest

On the border with Crook by John Gregory Bourke( Book )

1 edition published in 1892 in Undetermined and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

From 1870 until 1886 Captain John G. Bourke served on the staff of General George Crook, who Sherman described as the greatest Indian fighter the army ever had, a man whose prowess was demonstrated "from British America to Mexico, from the Missouri River to the Pacific Ocean." But On the Border with Crook is far more than a first-hand account of Crook's campaigns during the Plains Indian wars and in the Southwest. Alert, curious, and perceptive, Bourke brings to life the whole frontier scene. In crisp descriptions and telling anecdotes he recreates the events and landscapes through which he moved; he sketches sharp action-pictures not only of Crook and his fellow cavalrymen but also of great leaders as Sitting Bull, Crazy Horse, and Geronimo. Perhaps most important, Bourke shows us how General Crook was able to achieve his most remarkable victory -- how this man of war won and deserved the trust of the tribes he had subjugated. - Back cover
