Phil Sheridan And His Arm
Series/Author: Paul

Paperback - Great Phil Sheridan and His Army by Paul Andrew Hutton Paul Hutton’s study of Phil Sheridan in the West is authoritative, readable, and an important contribution to the literature of westward expansion. Although headquartered in Chicago, Sheridan played a crucial role in the opening of the West. His command stretched from the Missouri to the Rockies and from Mexico to Canada, and all the Indian Wars of the Great Plains fell under his direction. Hutton ably narrates and interprets Sheridan’s western career from the perspective of the top command rather than the battlefield leader. His book is good history and good reading.–Robert M.

Soiled Doves
Series/Author: Anne

Paperback - Great Soiled Doves: Prostitution in the Early West by Anne Seagraves Soiled Doves tells of the grey world of prostitution and the women who participated in the oldest profession. Colorful, if not socially acceptable, these ladies of easy virtue were a definite part of the early West – Wearing ruffled petticoats with fancy bows, they were glamorous and plain, good and bad and many were as wild as the land they came to tame. Women like Molly b' Dam, Mattie Silks, and Chicago Joe blended into the fabric of the American Frontier with an easy familiarity. Others, such as Sorrel Mike, escaped through suicide, Lottie Johl chose marriage and the Chinese slave girls lived a life without hope. Illustrated with rare photos, this strong book provides a touching insight into the lives of the ladies of the night. Learn More
