Summary
"An engrossing and tautly written account of a critical chapter in American history." —Los Angeles Times Nathaniel Philbrick, author of In the Hurricane's Eye, Pulitzer Prize finalist Mayflower, and Valiant Ambition, is a historian with a unique ability to bring history to life. The Last Stand is Philbrick's monumental reappraisal of the epochal clash at the Little Bighorn in 1876 that gave birth to the legend of Custer's Last Stand. Bringing a wealth of new information to his subject, as well as his characteristic literary flair, Philbrick details the collision between two American icons- George Armstrong Custer and Sitting Bull-that both parties wished to avoid, and brilliantly explains how the battle that ensued has been shaped and reshaped by national myth
Summary
Analyzes the characters and contributions of the Plains Indians leader and one of the Union's greatest cavalry officers while explaining how the conflict forged a Native American alliance and set the stage for the confinement of major tribal leaders on reservations
