On other topics he was open-minded, tolerant, and eager to learn. Though he never fought in a big battle, he saw and recorded practically everything else that happened on the Great Plains. Along with much minutiae, Ware's remin i s c e n c e s c onvey 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....His book suggests the grandeur of history, and yet it is intimat e, p er so na l co mm u ni cation - fresh, spirited, and delightful reading."

Exterior - book heavily cocked, creases on spi ne, li ght br ow nin g t o spi ne - less on covers, a few light edge wrinkles, small old price label on front cover, crease down front hinge.
