Publisher's Summary

George Armstrong Custer: The name evokes instant recognition in almost every American and in people around the world. No figure in the history of the American West has more powerfully moved the human imagination.
When originally published in 1988, Cavalier in Buckskin was met with critical acclaim. Now Robert M. Utley has revised his best-selling biography of General George Armstrong Custer. In his preface to the revised edition, Utley writes about his summers (1947-1952) spent as a historical aide at the Custer Battlefield - as it was then known - and credits the work of several authors whose recent scholarship has illuminated our understanding of the events of Little Bighorn.
The book is published by University of Oklahoma Press.

"An evocative book that expands the historiography on Custer beyond the extremes of the past to a more balanced and appropriate place in American frontier history and popular culture." ( American Historical Review)
