From dust jacket: Before the railroad came, in the time just after the last war with the Sioux, L. A. Huffman came to Fort Keogh as post photographer. He set up a studio in Miles City. He went into forbidden reservations among the Indians. He trekked through Montana territory, went on hunting expeditions for the bear, the buffalo, and the buck. He ranched to make ends meet. He explored deep into Yellowstone country, made pictures there of sights no white man had seen before; and famous warriors and scouts loafed in his studio and told stories of the days of Sitting Bull, Joseph, and Dull Knife and Little Wolf. He learned the soldier's life, the life of the Indian, the economics of the buffalo slaughter, the wolfer's job. He photographed the Indian, the animal-hunter and the man-hunter, the racks of bones on the field where Custer stood, wagon tracks, tree burials, skining the buffalo, cabin interiors, the winter, hostile Sioux villages, General Phil Sheridan, Calamity Jane, the roundup, the river in flood, the freighters hauling into town, the plains. Always the people were his favorites: he caught them well and saved them for another day. And his pcitures wanted background, so he kept letters, diaries, and notes of every description. His sketches have an intamacy and grass-roots authority, and they are equal in value, now, to the photographs they describe...
