I love the story and the author but the book itself is very strange. It's as if it was interpreted by a machine from the original handwriting, because the wrong letters look similar to what the letter should have been. There are tons of misspelled words- on almost every page. In one line, while on horseback, the author says "I was so scared I nearly lost my scat".
I assume it was supposed to be "lost my seat", although that one did give me a chuckle. Never received a book like it before. Very distracting and I would not have purchased this copy had I known. I will still give it 5 stars for the story though, it's from a different perspective than others from this time period usually are. September 5, - Published on Amazon.
Very interesting and insightful book about the times. Elizabeth Custer has a nice writing style and keeps your interest unlike her husband whose book was dull and boring. The discussions of life on the plains back in the 's is spell binding.
Weather, living conditions, friendships, Indian troubles etc. Lawrence Barrett. Over his desk was a picture of his wife in bridal dress Elizabeth Custer had them all, and they are evident here. Boots and Saddles is one of the few books of military life in the 's from a woman's perspective and invaluable for that reason alone, but it is doubly important for the light it sheds on George Custer.

Preface ONE of the motives that have actuated me in recalling these simple annals of our daily life, has been to give a glimpse to civilians of garrison and camp life about which they seem to have such a very imperfect knowledge. This ignorance exists especially with reference to any thing pertaining to the cavalry, which is almost invariably stationed on the extreme frontier. The isolation of the cavalry posts makes them quite in accessible to travelers, and the exposure incident to meet ing warlike Indians does not tempt the visits of friends or even of the venturesome tourist.

Our life, therefore, was often as separate from the rest of the world as if we had been living on an island in the ocean. Very little has been written regarding the domestic life of an army family, and yet I cannot believe that it is with out interest; for the innumerable questions that are asked about our occupations, amusements, and mode of house keeping, lead me to hope that the actual answers to these queries contained in this little story will be acceptable.
This must also be my apology for entering in some in stances so minutely into trifling perplexities and events, which went to fill up the sum of our existence. A Blizzard 8 III.
