“Ware’s reminiscence convey a spacious sense of two American epics: offstage, the war between the North and the South, and, under his eyes, the broad stream of migration to the Far West, with wagon trains fifteen miles long passing by-eight or nine hundred teams of oxen a day. His book suggests the grandeur of history, and yet it is an intimate, personal communiation-fresh, spirited, and delightful reading.”-New Yorker”[Ware] was a superb reporter. The big country of plains and mountains spreads out in his pages, and he sketches the army and Indian camps in strong colors. There is an abundance of spirited detail. . .this rich book should appeal to all western history fans.”-Chicago Sunday Tribune”Filled with colorful and exciting incident, as much comic and touching as it is startling and dramatic, [this] is an unforgettable chronicle of the West that has become a legend, written by a man with a vivid imagination and a gifted pen who is at the same time remarkably accurate.”-Salt Lake City Tribune”The dust, the heat, the frigid cold, can all be felt in his pages. . . . This is a vivid book.”-New York Herald Tribune From Captain Eugene Fitch Ware’s service in the Seventh Iowa Cavalry, an organization charged with keeping the overland routes open and free from Indian attack, came The Indian War of 1864, originally published in 1911, the year of his death. This Bison Book edition carries a new introduction by John D. McDermott, the author of Forlorn Hope: The Battle of White Bird Canyon and the Beginning of the Nez Perce War.
