child_of_the_fighting_tenthIf one area of Western Americana comes up short, it is memoirs of “Army brats” in the Old West. Forrestine C. Hooker’s Child of the Fighting Tenth remedies the situation with Hooker’s reminiscences of 10th Cavalry black garrisons at Forts Sill, Concho, Davis and Apache, and the “Lost Troop,” whose Buffalo Soldiers nearly perished of thirst on the Staked Plains.
