1883. The Soldier-Author, in War and Literature: Comprising incidents and reminiscences of his childhood; his checkered life as a student and teacher; and his remarkable career as a soldier and author; embracing also the story of his unprecedented journey from ocean to ocean on horseback; and an account of his discovery of the source of the Mississippi River, and canoe voyage from thence to the Gulf of Mexico. Illustrated. From the Preface: No apology will be required from the author for presenting to the public some episodes in the useful career of a self-made man; and while the spirit of patriotism continues to animate the sturdy sons of America, the story of one of them who has exemplified this national trait in a conspicuous measure, will be deemed not unworthy of record. The lessons it teaches, more especially to the young, are those of uncompromising duty in every relation of life-self-denial, perseverance and pluck; while the successive stages of a course which led ultimately to a brilliant success, may be studied with some advantage by those just entering upon the business of life. As a soldier, Willard Glazier was without fear and without reproach.
