The day began with the killing of a 10 yr old Indian boy by U.S. cavalry troopers. Before it ended, all of those troopers and their commander, George Armstrong Custer, lay dead on the battlefield of the Little Big Horn. The worst defeat ever inflicted by Native Americans on the U.S. military. This book tells the full story of that dramatic day. The events leading up to it, and its aftermath, are told by the only ones who survived to recount it - the Indians.
The author did 22 yrs of research and took oral testimony from 72 Native American eyewitnesses. This is a narrative of the events plus a reconstruction that stands as the definitive version of the battle that became a legend. This book helps to tell the story as it really occurred.« less
