It offers insight into the influences that later would make him both a nemesis of the Indian tribes and their ardent advocate ... This is primarily an account of Crook's dramatic and sometimes controversial role in the Civil War, in which he was involved on three fronts in West Virginia, Tennessee, and Virginia"--Jacket.
