Boys' Book of Border Battles
The True Tales Behind America's Greatest Battles of the 18th and 19th CenturiesBook - 2013
Noted both for the author's exhaustive research and for his historical accuracy (even his writing style might suggest a document written during the time periods he writes about), the Boys' Book of Border Battles is the final book in a trilogy penned by Sabin about the adventures of the Wild West. But where the other volumes dealt more with the lawlessness and chaos that defined the early days of frontier living for white settlers, this last title is described in the author's own words as "an American soldier book, of organized fighting on American soil by militia, volunteers, and the regulars of the 'old army.'"
This Skyhorse reprint of the 1920 text faithfully reproduces Boys' Book of Border Battles in its original state, complete with high-quality replicas of the illustration plates that accompany the book.
