Army Letters from an Officer's Wife, 1871-1888

by Frances M.A. Roe

One of the most compelling naratives describing the lives of the army men and their familes who were sent out to tame the old west in the 19th century. In this distinct genre of the literature of the American West, Roe's work stands out as one of the best. Thought of as a 'woman's book', this work probably has never gained the attention it deserves. Literate, descriptive and compelling, I honestly could not stop reading. Enjoy!
