The Untold Story of America's Desert Military Experiment
In the mid-nineteenth century, the U.S. Army would employ a weapon that had never before been seen on its native soil. From the Middle East came a cavalry mount that would fare better than both mules and horses in the American Southwest. Against the Mojave in the Arizona Territory...against the Mormons in Utah Territory...during the early stages of the Civil War, the camel would become one of America's great military experiements, and a nearly forgotten chapter of Americana.
“A fascinating portrait of the American West…Johnson reaches deep into the essence of how America came to be.“
~Bevin Alexandra, Military Historian and author.
