Description
In this lavishly illustrated volume, the Pulitzer Prize–winning chronicler of the American West profiles one of its most iconic figures. When General George Armstrong Custer and his 7th Cavalry attacked a large Lakota village by the Little Bighorn River on June 25, 1876, his stunning and total defeat quickly grew into legend. Larry McMurtry has long been fascinated by the "Boy General" and his rightful place in history, and here he delivers an expansive, agile, and clear-eyed reassessment of Custer's life and his powerful legacy within the broad sweep of our national heritage.

"McMurtry has reminded us that, in the hands of a master, entertaining, old-fashioned storytelling rooted firmly in uniquely American experiences and landscape is pretty darn hard to beat."—Washington Post
