Description
 

<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 Philbricks monumental reappraisal of the epochal clash at the Little Bighorn in 1876 that gave birth to the legend of Custers 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.
