"In the narrative of Yellowstone Kelly we have a rare story of adventure and service. General Miles, who knew him long and intimately, fitly compares him with such heroes of the American wilderness as Daniel Boone and David Crocket. . . . His story is at once an important contribution to the history of the western frontier in the decades to which it pertains and a thrilling tale of sustained adventure."—M. M. Quaife

"What old 'Yellowstone' has to say is extremely interesting, and he tells it in simple, straightforward fashion, with a wealth of absorbing detail."—New York Times

"Mr. Kelly writes not as a novelist, but as a historian, and his work is rich in the best qualities of both."—Outlook

"His memoirs [are] written with a rare skill in narration. . . . It is a part of the story of the West and particularly of the Yellowstone region that we could ill afford to lose."—Review of Reviews

"Here is history in a most entertaining form."—Boston Transcript
