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.

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.
