Mostly Alkali

by Stephen Perry Jocelyn

Publication: Caxton Printers, 1953, Caldwell

First edition. Cloth, 436pp. Num. illus. and several maps. General Stephen Perry Jocelyn served forty-four years in the Army, more than thirty of those years were spent in assignments on the Western frontier. He was an officer at Fort Warner when the Modoc War broke out; he was brevetted for conspicuous gallantry in action in the Nez Perce War, and he was a participant in the Bannock Indian War. This is written by General Jocelyn's son, Stephen Perry Jocelyn II, and is derived largely from General Jocelyn's letters and journals. An excellent work. Fine in dust jacket.
