Soldiers Of The Plains


Other works by P. E. BYRNE

Publication: Minton, Balch & Company, 1926, New York

First Edition. Red Cloth. xi, 260pp. Appendices. Index. "The book is primarily about the Battle of the Little Big Horn: what led up to it, including the Battle of the Rosebud; the battle itself; and its aftermath, including the pursuit of the Nez Perce and the Reno Court of Inquiry. This may be the best book written on the Little Big Horn in the first fifty years after the battle. Pro-Indian but fair to all and very critical of Reno, with material on Crazy Horse and the Nez Perce Chief Joseph. Recommended."--O'KEEFE 294. A fine, bright copy. The very scarce dust jacket is price-clipped and has some very slight wear at top of spine, else fine and bright. Signed presentation by author on title page.
