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

U.S. soldier Charles King first saw the battlefield during the American Indian Wars and, by 1898, had worked his way up to the rank of Brigadier General.
