    WINNER! Rounce & Coffin Club Award of Merit.
    Originally published in 1949 by the Arizona Pioneers’ Historical Society and the Grabhorn Press, this classic item of Western Americana quickly sold out its initial printing of 300 copies. Today, it is much sought after by collectors and military historians. In his introduction to this elegant reprint, University of New Mexico professor Durwood Ball describes how industrialist and benefactor W. J. “Jack” Holliday collaborated with the Historical Society to publish this vivid account of service with the Regiment of Mounted Riflemen in New Mexico and present-day Arizona in the troubled 1850s. Professor Ball also assesses the book’s importance to the military history of the Southwest. The new edition includes thirteen previously unpublished Heger drawings from the Arizona Historical Society collections.
