Publisher's Summary

Pulitzer Prize winner Larry McMurtry crafts works synonymous with the grandeur and beauty of the American West. Here McMurtry turns his attention to George A. Custer, a complex man who has captivated historians for over a century. From graduating last in his class at West Point to leading the ill-fated 7th Cavalry in the attack at Little Bighorn, Custer forged a legacy - still very much alive today - as one of the West's most enduring historical figures.

    "A story that needed to be told!"

    I learned more about General Custer than I learned by going to the battlefield. It was very worthwhile.

    Story
    "Good overview of Custer's life"

    I found McMurty's short history of Custer, like his Crazy Horse biography, meandering yet illuminating. The author subscribes to how slippery memory and history is; therefore anyone expecting an authoritative narrative, wrapped up in a neat package is likely to be disappointed. Rather, McMurtry dances around his subject, with an end result of a vivid and seemingly honest impression of Custer and his time.

    Story
    "Not a novelized review of the battle - for amateur historians"

    Narrative review of historical books regarded the era and events leading to the battle and the aftermath. Presumes a familiarity of the period (e.g., a discussion of the south pass route notes it was discovered by the Astor land team without any explanation of who the team was.)
