Great story. However, the content was a little limited. Seems more like a picture book. The pictures were great. The narrative, in my opinion, should have been modified to engage the reader more, by quoting the individual(s) that they were citing on key points. This would make the book more readable, especial to young kids, verses setting the book in the vernacular of the subject.

Additionally, more details should have been provided in the story and moved out of the "Forward" from the author. The fact that about 180,000 African American men joined and participated in the Union cavalry, infantry, and other military units should have been mentioned directly in the story and expounded upon. The point is African Americans have, and continue to make a significant contribution to this great nation.

Nevertheless, I still like this book and would highly recommend it.

"The Buffalo Soldier" by Sherry Garland, with illustrations by Ronald Himler, is an excellent introduction to the famed Buffalo Soldiers of the U.S. Ninth and Tenth Cavalry on the western frontier. Though written primarily for young readers, it is of value to anyone who wants to know more about these gallant soldiers. Garland does a good job writing from the point of view of one of these men - all without being in any way dismissive or disrespectful. Himler's illustrations are excellent, although he shows all the men in neat uniforms and wearing yellow scarves, when in fact, they often were in rather ragged dress and wore a variety of scarves and headgear. Minor issues in an otherwise excellent book that I highly recommend for adults as well as young readers.

I bought this book to use as a research source for my own series of novels about the men of the Ninth Cavalry, and find it extremely useful.Buffalo Soldier: Escort Duty
