The Powder River Expedition journals of Colonel Richard Irving Dodge by Richard Irving Dodge( Book )

4 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 276 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dodge's journals will clearly prove useful to specialists in U.S.-Indian relations and the Great Sioux War, but they will also appeal to a variety of readers because of Dodge's lively style and his range of subject matter. With vigorous intelligence, he describes such topics as General Crook as a military leader and strategist, the merits of infantry versus cavalry against the Plains Indians, the effects of subzero weather in Wyoming on a large army far from its sources of supply, and of course, the elusiveness of military glory
The Indian territory journals of Colonel Richard Irving Dodge by Richard Irving Dodge( Book )

3 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 272 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In these journals, Colonel Richard Irving Dodge, a well-known chronicler of western history and an authority on Plains Indians, provides an important account of conditions in Indian Territory from 1878 to 1880, a period of rapid transition." "The Cheyenne-Arapaho reservation in present-day western Oklahoma was the center of Dodge's activity. His writings offer a firsthand record of the 1878 retreat of the Northern Cheyenne, the conditions endured by Indians who remained on the reservation, and the jurisdictional conflicts between Army personnel and representatives of the Office of Indian Affairs."
The Black Hills journals of Colonel Richard Irving Dodge by Richard Irving Dodge( Book )

7 editions published between 1996 and 2018 in English and held by 225 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the spring and summer of 1875, Lt. Col. Richard Irving Dodge escorted the scientific expedition of geologist Walter P. Jenney into the Black Hills of the Dakotas to determine the truth of rumors of gold started by Gen. George Armstrong Custer the previous summer. The five-month trek north from Cheyenne, Wyoming, challenged Dodge's 452 men with their wagons and animals, but in many respects it was "a delightful pic nic (without the ladies)," as Dodge described it. Colonel Dodge wrote his journals daily in the field, and in their variety, discursiveness, and detail they convey clearly the pleasure he took in what he said was "the most delightful summer of my life." Yet he used only a small fraction of what he recorded in his subsequent official communications and published works. If it were not for this well-annotated and illustrated edition by Wayne R. Kime, readers would not have access to Dodge's experiences with such characters as the stowaway Calamity Jane or the eccentric mountain man and backwoods philosopher California Joe, who was hired to guide the expedition. Dodge's particular interests in hunting, fishing, and fine scenery also enliven his narrative, as do the politics dividing the miners from the Indians, and the soldiers from the scientists on the expedition
The Sherman tour journals of Colonel Richard Irving Dodge by Richard Irving Dodge( Book )

3 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 223 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In summer 1883, General Sherman took Dodge with him on a 10,000-mile inspection tour across the northern tier of territories, on to the Pacific Northwest, south through California, and east through the Southwest to Denver. Dodge had no idea his journals would ever become public, so he wrote openly about his companions and their interactions, terrain and natural wonders, conditions of military posts, life in civilian communities, and what the future seemed to hold for the region and its changing population."--Jacket
Raising the wind : the legend of Lapland and Finland wizards in literature by Ernest J Moyne( Book )

4 editions published between 1980 and 1981 in English and held by 207 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Advocate for America : the life of James Kirke Paulding by Ralph M Aderman( Book )

4 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Advocate for America is the first full-length biography of James Kirke Paulding (1778-1860), an American writer and public servant who for much of his long career stood in the first rank among native authors. Born in Westchester County, New York, Paulding was the lifelong friend of Washington Irving, the nation's first professional man of letters, and collaborated with him in early works including the celebrated Salamagundi series (1807-1808). In later decades he played a continuing role in the cultural life of the young nation, numbering among his friends and associates a great many other writers, editors, and publishers." "In the present volume Aderman and Kime offer a multifaceted portrait of this intriguing figure, both individual and contextual. Drawing upon the author's family papers and extensive correspondence, they describe his family and social life while surveying the primary enterprise of his career, his work as a writer. Drawing additionally upon newspapers and magazines of the day and on the letters, documents, memoirs, and speeches of Paulding's associates, they establish a backdrop for viewing his personality and ideas as his contemporaries perceived them. This double focus brings into living perspective a loving husband and father, a versatile literary artist, an ardent nationalist, and a clear-eyed observer of the American scene."--BOOK JACKET
