Absaraka, Home of the Crows: Being the Experience of an Officer's Wife on the Plains
Carrington, like many officers' wives, kept a journal of her stay in the outposts of the West. She recorded her impressions of the scenery and the inhabitants of Absaraka-present-day Wyoming, Montana, and the western Dakotas. Wife of the commander of Fort Phil Kearny, she also recorded events that led to the Fetterman massacre.
