Prairie Sketches or Fugitive Recollections of an Army Girl of 1899
First Edition. Softcover. Very good. No publication information or date given; reportedly printed privately in an edition of only 100 copies. 76 pp, in printed wrappers, with illustrations from photographs. Tape repair to spine, interesting previous owner's notation on one page; very good. Happily raised in the far West on a series of "remote army posts," the author had been sent to boarding school in New York for two years. This engaging memoir recounts her return to Fort Washakie, Wyoming, where her father was an officer with the 7th Cavalry. Her narrative of the 150-mile journey from the train station to the Fort includes interesting descriptions of several ranches along the route and is filled with colorful characters and high praise for a life spent out on the range. She had great admiration for the many Shoshone and Arapahoe Indians she knew, and her detailed descriptions of their camps, beliefs, stories, and ceremonies are particularly worthwhile. Graff 1251.
