Fair writes home to his sisters from his posts in the Dakota Territory and Montana. In the letters, Fair describes the daily life of and conditions faced by a common soldier stationed on the Plains; buffalo hunting; encounters with Native Americans, particularly the Crow and Nez Perce; and patrol and reconnaissance missions in Yellowstone National Park and other places.
