Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

A "galvanized reb" was a Confederate soldier converted to the "true" ways of the Union. But, for David Chantry, it meant outwardly renouncing his family and country in order to free himself from prison, all while secretly working as a Confederate spy. Armed with an assignment from a Washington, D.C., newspaper to photograph the Oglala Sioux, Chantry had involved himself in an underground plot to undermine the Union Army by stirring up the Indians against the North.

Originally published in the U.S. by Doubleday, ©1977.

"David Chantry swore an oath to the Union to get out of prison, but as a photographer for a Washington, D.C. newspaper, he is secretly a Confederate spy in the West trying to stir up the Oglala Sioux against the Union"-- Provided by publisher.
