Editor, soldier, Indian fighter, Indian supporter, and American consul in Spain, Thomas Newson lived a fascinating life. For thirty years, he was on the American frontier. He interacted with many Native Americans and in 1884 wrote this account of his life in the West.

His stories bring Native Americans to life in the eyes of someone who respected, befriended, and fought with them as they struggled to maintain their centuries-old way of life and to protect their families from white encroachment.

Newson also provides an account of the Battle of the Little Bighorn, less than a decade after the event. His informant is someone who was there shortly after the battle and who also obtained Indian accounts of the battle.

For the first time, this long out-of-print volume is available as an affordable, well-formatted book for e-readers and smartphones.
