Here's a good one, Dixie Girl.

That Devil Forrest: Life of General Nathan Bedford Forrest

The book is written by John Allan Wyeth. Wyeth wrote this book in 1899. During the war he was a private in the Confederate infantry, but became a surgeon after the war. As you read this book you will be able to tell that Wyeth is a big admirer of Forrest.

The book is chock full of information. It is based on first hand accounts by those who knew Forrest told to Wyeth and research he did of writings about Forrest.  Reading this book will teach you much about Forrest and about the Civil War.

I bought my copy at  It sells for $22.95, but you may be able to find it used for cheaper. The print is very small. I hope you have good eyes.
