Editorial Reviews

Review

“Monks had been involved in so many blood-curdling controversies and adventures that he felt obliged to reminisce for those yet unborn. In reissuing this gripping account . . . the editors deserve gratitude and praise for their efforts and foresight.” —Missouri Historical Review “The book begins with a sentimental description of pioneering days of milk and honey in the 1840s and 1850s, but these saccharine remembrances are soon displaced by vignettes of violence . . . whiskey-fueled brawls . . . [and the] horrors of guerrilla warfare.” —Journal of the West “A riveting story and a valuable research tool.” —Daniel Sutherland, Civil War in the West series editor “William Monks’s compelling memoir of the Civil War and its aftermath in Missouri and Arkansas contains little about marching armies and set-piece battles, but it presents a fascinating account of ordinary people caught up in extraordinary times. Here is a glimpse of the real war in the Trans-Mississippi where arson and ambuscades were commonplace events and everyone had a score to settle.” —William Shea, co-author of Pea Ridge: Civil War Campaign in the West (North Carolina, 1992)

Format: Paperback
Absolutely riveting account of a very different brand of war compared to what was happening in the East. Interesting looks at personalities in the Ozarks during the 19th Century. Hard times, hard people.

Poor quality book! I have the original book and this book is terrible in comparison. It looks like it has been photocopied and some pages are unreadable. Don't waste your money on this one--get the one with Monks' picture on the cover.

By William on March 3, 2014
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Very detailed book. Not for the casual reader of Ozark history. Historically important, worth reading. The author (Monk) is self serving and on the righteous side of every issue, but by and large an accurate narrative.
