The seventh volume of the Flashman Papers records the arch-cad's adventures in America during Gold Rush of 1849 and the Battle of Bighorn, in 1876. This installment describes his acquaintance with famous Indian chiefs, American soldiers, frontiersmen, and statesmen.

The story arc covered by Flash for Freedom and Flashman and the Redskins is a great read. If you like historical fiction, this would be an excellent addition to your library.
Earlier works in the series were more laugh out loud fun for me. Keep in mind mind that this was the first audio version of the Flashman novels I have had a chance to listen too and although Mr. Case does a spectacular job with Flashman, his accents for most of the other characters were distracting and rang flat to my ear.
