Pebbled rust binding with gilt titles. Printing is on pink paper. A classic cavalry narrative of life on the frontier. These observations by a fromer member of the Sixth Cavalry range from how the "glorious fourth" of 1867 was celebrated to the marches from Matagorda Bay through Western Texas to Kansas, and "living on snow for 72 hours." Very good condition with only lightest rubs to top of spine and lower portion of front cover. Tight and crisp, 319 pages, including the table of contents that was printed at the end of the book.
