More Information
George Armstrong Custer, America?s most famously unfortunate soldier, has been the subject of scores of books, but The Custer Reader is unique as a substantial source of classic writings about and by him. Here is Custer as seen by himself, his contemporaries, and leading scholars. Even those steeped in Custeriana will discover new insights in these pieces. Combining first-person narratives, essays, and photographs, this book provides a complete introduction to Custer?s controversial personality and career and the evolution of the Custer myth.

WHAT THE EXPERTS ARE SAYING:
?A unique and valuable compendium, audacious in its scope, riveting in its portrayal of the man and the legend, and filled with penetrating insights. If you can own only one Custer book, this should be it.?
?Montana The Magazine of Western History

?A veritable treasure trove of important Custeriana and the best compilation on its subject ever to appear.?
?Jerome A. Greene, author of Washita: The U.S. Army and the Southern Cheyennes, 1867-1869
