Buffalo Soldiers (Black Sabre Chronicles) (edition 2001)
by Tom Willard
Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0812551052, Mass Market Paperback)
From the Civil War to Desert Storm, there stretches an unbroken line of dedicated, distinguished service by African-Americans in the United States military. Buffalo Soldiers is a tribute to the bravery, honor, and sacrifice of these black American fighting men.
Sergeant Major Augustus Sharps of the 10th Cavalry and other former slaves had proven that they could fight valiantly for their freedom, but in the West they were to fight for the freedom and security of white settlers who often despised them. The Cheyenne thought the hair of this new kind of soldier resembled buffalo hides, and the men on the 9th and 10th Cavalry became known as "buffalo soldiers."

It is told through the eyes of Samuel Sharps, a boy saved from slavery who rose to sergeant-major in an all-black unit nicknamed Buffalo Soldiers by the Indians because of their curly hair.
