An avid sportsman and explorer, Gibbon also recounts hunting and fishing trips in the wilderness and a visit to the newly created Yellowstone Park. Above all he recounts in detail the realities of army life and Indian warfare. He saw no gallant cavalry charges in the Sioux Campaign of 1876, only footsore infantrymen marching in search of Indian warriors who outdistanced their pursuers.
