Frontier Soldier: An Enlisted Man's Journal - Sioux & Nez Perce Campaigns, 1877
By William Zimmer. Softcover, 181 pages.
"Not many enlisted men recorded their adventures in Indian warfare. Still fewer actually kept a journal to lend immediacy to their observations. Frontier Soldier is such a journal, by a literate private who left his story of plains warfare in a chronicle rich in detail. It is the richer for the annotations of Jerome A. Greene, whose understanding of the campaigns in which Zimmer marched is surpassed by few historians." --Robert M. Utley
