Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Custer's ill-fated attack on June 25, 1876, has gone down as the American military's most catastrophic defeat. This historic and personal work tells the Native American side, poignant revealing how disastrous the encounter was for the "victors," the last great gathering of Plains Indians under the leadership of Sitting Bull. Telling of the pride and desperation of a people systematically stripped of their treaty rights, hounded from their ancestral hunting grounds, and herded into wretched reservations, reveals how this defining moment in American history was no more a "Last Stand" than a final celebration of waning power and freedom.

Synopsis:

The classic account of Custer's Last Stand that shattered the myth of the Little Bighorn and rewrote history books.

Synopsis:

This historic and personal work tells the Native American side of Custer's fabled attack, poignantly revealing how disastrous the encounter was for the "victors," the last great gathering of Plains Indians under the leadership of Sitting Bull.

Synopsis:

In his first nonfiction work, the author of The Death of Jim Loney and The Indian Lawyer poignantly resurrects the Plains Indians' side of the story of the Little Bighorn from beneath a mountain of myth and misinterpretation, revamping the meaning of the conflict for a multicultural society.
