The Plains : being no less than a collection of veracious memoranda taken during the expedition of exploration in the year 1845, from the western settlements of Missouri to the Mexican border, and from Bent's Fort on the Arkansas to Fort Gibson, via South Fork of Canadian--north Mexico and north-western Texas by Louis Richeome( Book )

2 editions published in 1972 in Undetermined and English and held by 451 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1845 a young man named Isaac Cooper set out in search of adventure. He found it with John C. Frémont's third expedition en route to California across the southern Great Plains. Frémont demanded secrecy about the details of his western forays and forbade his men to keep diaries and journals, a fact that gives credence to claims that the Pathfinder was little more than a filibuster for Manifest Destiny. But Cooper made notes and later wrote The Plains under the nom de plume of François des Montaignes, perhaps still fearing Frémont's wrath. Portions of Copper's memoir were serialized in The Western Journal and Civilian in St. Louis in the 1850's, but until now it has never been published in its entirety. The original manuscript is in the Ella Strong Denison Library at Scripps College in Claremont, California. Cooper, or Montaignes, accompanied Frémont only as far as Bent's Fort, the famous fur-trading center on the Arkansas River in southeastern Colorado. There the expedition split. White Frémont went on to California, Copper turned south with a party of men led by Lieutenant J.W. Abert for the return trip to St. Louis. The people Cooper encountered emerge vividly from the pages of his memoir. There are Frémont, the martinet, and his servant, the obsequious Mesty-Woolah; grizzled mountain men like Thomas Fitzpatrick and John Hatcher; the bombastic old trapper, François La Tulippe, countless Indian; peerless Mexican horsemen; and blundering greenhorns. Cooper presents a whole gallery of western types, including two redoubtable but improbably named army mules, Miss Fanny Squears and Miss Sally Bass. Isaac Cooper's writing is a rare blend of frontier metaphor and urban refinement. Through his descriptions of the region, its people, and it flora and fauna, the Southern Plains acquire a new dimension for scholar and general reader alike
Campaigning with King : Charles King, chronicler of the old army by Don Russell( Book )

3 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 357 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Captain Charles King (1844-1933) served seventy years in America's military forces and was decorated for fighting in five wars -- a living rebuttal to the notion that old soldiers fade away loquaciously in their downtown clubs. But he did spin yarns. In fact, he became one of the best-known chroniclers of the frontier army and the Indian wars of the 1870s, and an imnmensely popular writer of fiction. From his pen flowed dozens of novels and histories that made him the American Kipling. Long overdue, Campaigning with King is the first study of that remarkable man's military and literary careers, written after his death by Don Russell, a respected authority on frontier history. Russell had talked with and corresponded with King since the late 1920s to produce an authentic and colorful book. - Jacket flap
