Abstract:

"The purpose of this work, therefore, is to survey the entire subject of Indian military cooperation with the whites in the period 1860-90, in an attempt to discern patterns of action and motivation. My intention is less to provide new information about particular scout units--although a number of points made here have not been examined in print before--than to discover the broader meaning of episodes and personalities that have previously been viewed in isolation or in passing"--Introd.
