'Grinnell perhaps knew more about Plains Indians and the Indian wars than any non-military white man of his time. He knew many of the Cheyenne and Pawnee warriors...Because so much of this volume is based on material gathered directly from participants, including Pawnees as well as the Norths, it is an important source that can be enjoyed by scholar and general reader' - "American Indian Quarterly". From 1864 until 1877, the Pawnee Scouts, a unique U.S. Army battalion of about a hundred Pawnees, were scouts and soldiers during the height of the Plains Indian wars and earned the respect of prominent generals in the West, including George Crook, Eugene Carr, and Ranald Mackenzie. They were commanded by the famous "fighting Norths." Originally published in 1928, "Two Great Scouts and Their Pawnee Battalion" is based upon Luther's firsthand recollections.The Pawnee Scouts and the Norths helped protect the construction of the Union Pacific Railroad, scouted for the Connor Expedition in 1865 and along the Republican River in 1866, fought the Cheyenne at the Battle of Plum Creek, directed the Carr Expedition that led to the destruction of the Cheyenne Dog Soldier village at Summit Springs, fought in Crook's Campaign against Dull Knife in 1876-1877, and assisted with the campaign following Custer's defeat. The North brothers became national celebrities, entering a ranching partnership with Buffalo Bill Cody on the Dismal River in central Nebraska. George Bird Grinnell, noted anthropologist and ethnologist, wrote numerous books and was a founder of the Audubon Society. James T. King is the author of "War Eagle: A Life of General Eugene A. Carr".
