"Provocative, boldly theoretical, marked by often keen analysis, and beautifully written... No one who writes on Custer in the future will be able to ignore [Barnett's] book."--Paul Andrew Hutton, Civil War Times "There is much unusual and useful information about life on the plains, Indian warfare, the danger and fear of captivity by Indians, and especially, the relationship between Custer and his wife."--New York Times Book Review "The fine account of his 'mythic afterlife' makes Ms. Barnett's book unique."--Byron Farwell, Washington Times "A sharp, original, and engaging study of Custer's life and myth which ... includes a first-rate account of the Little Bighorn."--Plain Dealer
