Cavalry Scout free pdf An exhilarating story of love and desertion set amid the nineteenth-century Indian wars "I wished I was back in Texas and had never left there to end up scouting in such godforsaken country for an army dressed in blue." Such are the sentiments of John Singleterry as this gripping tale begins. Singleterry and his partner, Dunreath, are taken captive by two American Indian fighters. One is an old medicine woman, and the other, holding a rifle, is a beautiful mixed-race girl. They tell the scouts about their tribe's decimation during its forced relocation, and of multiple promises that have been broken--stories that force Singleterry to face difficult questions of love, desertion, and the real meaning of honor. A moving novel of torn loyalties, " Cavalry Scout" gives full-blooded reality to its time, and to both the settlers and natives at the heart of its story. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Dee Brown including rare photos from the author's personal collection.

About Dee Brown

Dorris Alexander "Dee" Brown (1908-2002) was a celebrated author of both fiction and nonfiction, whose classic study "Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee "is widely credited with exposing the systematic destruction of American Indian tribes to a world audience. Brown was born in Louisiana and grew up in Arkansas. He worked as a reporter and a printer before enrolling at Arkansas State Teachers College, where he met his future wife, Sally Stroud. He later earned two degrees in library science, and worked as a librarian while beginning his career as a writer. He went on to research and write more than thirty books, often centered on frontier history or overlooked moments of the Civil War. Brown continued writing until his death in 2002.
