Abstract

398Southwestern Historical QuarterlyJanuary diaries also include a wealth of insight on antebellum army life in the Lone Star State and the relationships between officers posted here. This is a lavishly produced, handsome publication worth every penny of its hardcover cost. Mark McGarry did an excellentjob on the book's design and layout. The coverjacket design is attractive and sophisticated. Tom Jonas's maps provide important context and orientation for the reader and rank among the finest this reviewer has seen. The sixteen pages of well-reproduced color and black-andwhite images include twenty-three plates from the original expedition report. The plates, which depict period landscapes, plants, and Native Americans, represent some of the earliest use of chromolithography. In sum, Wallace and Hevly's work, painstakingly edited and annotated, is certain to become a classic and oft-consulted reference tool for those interested in the history, ethnohistory, and natural history of nineteenth-century Western America and Texas.
