Books I’ve Known and Loved / Anything by Robert Utley


The West was no simple place. Robert Utley gets that. Soldier/Indian relations varied depending on the Indian and the soldier. Pride, love and ego, not to mention military orders, pressure from the East and teenaged warriors run amok made for complications and tragedy. Utley writes about the West like no other.

Check out A Life Wild and Perilous and his great biography of Geronimo too.
