Overview

This edition includes a modern introduction and a list of suggested further reading.

In 1885, Elizabeth ("Libbie") Custer published her memoir about her marriage to General George Armstrong Custer, the most controversial military officer of the nineteenth century. Set at Fort Lincoln, Dakota Territory, Boots and Saddles offers a singular historical view of the frontier West and the Plains Wars. Women who followed the army endured both boredom and danger, and Boots and Saddles could have aptly been subtitled "Elite Homemaking in the Far West."

The title would make one think it is a children's book. I didn't expect much, but I was wrong. This was one of the best books I've read in a long time. Do yourself a favor and get this book. Very good historical non-fiction, easy to read, and a wealth of understanding of life in those times.
