Under the brilliant leadership of the charismatic John Horse, a band of black runaways, in alliance with Seminole Indians under Wild Cat, migrated from the Indian Territory to northern Mexico in the mid-nineteenth century to escape from slavery. These maroons subsequently provided soldiers for Mexico's frontier defense and later served the United States Army as the renowned Seminole Negro Indian Scouts. This is the story of the maroons' ethnogenesis in Florida, their removal to the West, their role in the Texas Indian Wars, and the fate of their long quest for freedom and self-determination along both sides of the Rio Grande. Their tale is a rich and colorful one, and one of epic proportions, stretching from the swamps of the Southeast to the desert Southwest. The maroons' history of African origins, plantation slavery, European and Indian associations, Florida wars, and forced removal culminated in a Mexican borderlands mosaic incorporating slave hunters, corrupt Indian agents, Texas filibusters, Mexican revolutionaries, French invaders, Apache and Comanche raiders, frontier outlaws and lawmen, and Buffalo Soldiers. What emerges is a saga of enslavement, flight, exile, and ultimately freedom.

Very likely the most important first-hand account of the Indian Wars you'll ever read. Captain John Gregory Bourke's classic volume on his time as aide-de-camp to General George Crook has been considered essential reading since it was published in 1891. This edition is updated with biographical information on Bourke and annotated with updated notes. Crook and Bourke were at the center of enormous change in the American West. Both of them were distinguished Civil War veterans and both believed there was a way to aid American westward expansion while treating native peoples with justice. Their careers in the West paralleled those of Red Cloud, Crazy Horse, Geronimo, and Sitting Bull, all of with whom they had dealings. A true soldier-scholar, highly-educated, and a Medal of Honor recipient, Bourke brought to this work an intelligent perspective, admiration for his commander, a deep desire to understand Native American ways, and a generous portion of humor. He was recognized in his time as an important ethnographer and writer. Every memoir of the American West provides us with another view of the movement that changed the country forever. For the first time, this long out-of-print volume is available as an affordable, well-formatted book for e-readers and smartphones.

In 1863 the news of Northern victories at Gettysburg and Vicksburg made the outcome of the Civil War clear to young Wiley Britton, who was fighting for the Union with the Sixth Kansas Cavalry. But there was still hell to pay before anyone could go home. Nowhere else was the war so brutal as on the borders of Missouri, Kansas, Arkansas, and the Indian territory, where bushwhackers and guerrilas dogged the heels of men going into battle. Always just ahead was the artillery fire of the Confederates. Trying to do his job and stay alive, private Britton wrote about engagements at Pea Ridge, Prairie Grove, Cane Hill, and elsewhere. Memoirs of the Rebellion on the Border, supplies a personal dimension unavailable to later historians, describing at firsthand the look of the countryside, the plight of its citizens, and, most poignantly, the faces and voices of comrades marching into history.
