Wondrous Times on the Frontier
August House Publishers
In his first work of nonfiction in twelve years, celebrated historian Dee Brown draws on more than fifty years of research in this good-humored social history of the American frontier. In a work rich in anecdotes about pioneers, women, lawmen, outlaws, newspapermen, schoolteachers, cowboys, tenderfeet, preachers, and native Americans, Brown portrays the diversity of the frontier experience.
"The book treats Grierson's raid in its proper context - as part of the complicated military maneuverings that won Vicksburg - rather than as an isolated stunt. Unlike so many of the dashing cavalry adventures of the Civil War, this expedition really meant something. What it meant, how it came about, and what was going on elsewhere at the time, the author tells very clearly." - Bruce Catton
