"Recounts sometimes harrowing, often fantastic tales. . . . As an essential document that is made even more valuable by Scott's incisive editing, this is both a good read and a valuable resource." --Civil War Book Review "This is the Civil War as a participant saw and lived it. . . . Highly recommended." --The Civil War News "Partisan, strident, and uncompromising, but remarkably non-vindictive, especially considering the truly vicious nature of the guerrilla conflict he experienced." --William Garrett Piston, author of Lee's Tarnished Lieutenant: James Longstreet and His Place in Southern History "Everyone will applaud this reissue of Albert W. Bishop's Loyalty on the Frontier. His writing is partisan, strident, and uncompromising, but remarkably non-vindictive, especially considering the truly vicious nature of the guerrilla conflict he experienced. Editor Kim Allen Scott provides an excellent introduction and copious notes. This is important reading not only for students of the war in the Trans-Mississippi, but also for those who wish to understand the human cost of a civil war." --William Garrett Piston, co-author of Wilson's Creek: The Second Battle of the Civil War and the Men Who Fought It
