Author Doris Fisher traces the journey of camels from Africa to Texas in 1856 for use as the very first US Camel Corps. Young readers will delight in the illustrations as they learn about this little-known part of American history. Although the camels initially were not accepted by the locals, the people of Texas came to respect their strength and endurance as they transported US Army supplies through the desert. This fascinating book also includes information about the camels legacy, such as their use by the Confederacy during the American Civil War, and the handlers who worked with them.
