Will the Real West Please Stand Up?! The exciting adventures of Black cowboys, pioneers, soldiers, and other frontiersmen join the celebrated folklore of the wild West in the Reflections of a Black Cowboy series. Through colorful, masterfully crafted vignettes that rival the tall tales of the old frontier, author Robert H. Miller shares stories of important real life heroes—men and women whose bravery and adventurous spirits helped make the American West possible.
Buffalo Soldiers introduces men who served in the Ninth and Tenth Calvaries (whom Native Americans named "Buffalo Soldiers"), including Emmanuel Stance, the first Black soldier to be awarded the medal of honor; and Lieutenant Henry O. Flipper, the first Black officer to graduate from West Point.
