Any fan of exploration will find this diary of two soldiers exploring the western United States trying to map territory to place a reservation. Some of the language and attitudes in this book are hard to read from a modern perspective, native Americans treated as savages and moved and shunted around so the land could be exploited for material gain, if anything this makes this book an important book for anybody interested in how mindsets have changed.
