Overview:

The Last Stand: Custer, Sitting Bull, and the Battle of the Little Bighorn : <div><b>"An engrossing, thoughtfully researched, and tautly written account of a critical chapter in American history." -<i>Los Angeles Times</i></b><br /> <br /> With a fantastic body of work that includes <i>In the Heart of the Sea</i> and Pulitzer Prize finalist <i>Mayflower</i>, Nathaniel Philbrick has emerged as a historian with a unique ability to bring history to life. <i>The Last Stand</i> 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.<br /> <br /></div>
