The Black Hills journals of Colonel Richard Irving Dodge by Richard Irving Dodge( )

7 editions published between 1996 and 2018 in English and held by 749 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

Die heutigen Indianer des fernen Westens by Richard Irving Dodge( Book )

26 editions published between 1882 and 2016 in English and German and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As one of the first attempts to portray Native Americans as they actually were and not the typically romanticized version that treated the Indian as alternately an unmitigated savage or a dashing bold hero fighting for his native land, this volume was critically acclaimed upon its debut in 1883. Fully illustrated with portraits on steel and featuring an introduction written by General William Tecumseh Sherman, this volume chronicles 33 years of experience amongst Native Americans of the West, including observations on their social life, religion, habits, traits, customs and exploits. This is an important record of American history

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

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 3 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
