Synopsis:

General Custer's ill-fated attack on a huge encampment of Plains Indians in 1876 has gone down as the most disastrous defeat in American military history. Much less understood is how disastrous the encounter was for the "victors". Within 15 years, no American Indians resided outside of reservations. Here is Welch's poignant resurrection of the Indian side of the story. 75 illustrations.


Review:

"Mr. Welch is a Blackfoot novelist and poet ...and one of the finest writers in the current renaissance of western fiction. 'Killing Custer', his first work of nonfiction, is a novelist's history: its strengths are in details artfully noticed and arranged and in narrative force."

Richard White, New York Times Book Review, 4/30/95

Review:

"'Killing Custer: The Battle of the Little Bighorn and the Fate of the Plains Indians' by James Welch, a novelist, is the product of a collaboration between one of America's most distinguished Indian writers and a documentary film-maker, Paul Stekler, who directed and co-wrote the 'American Experience' film, 'Last Stand at Little Bighorn'....With historical sophistication and literary skill, Welch recounts the story of Custer's defeat and the events that preceded and followed it...At the same time, he intersperses reflections on his visit to the site to help Stekler and his crew make the film."

Wilcomb E. Washburn, Times Literary Supplement, 06/09/1995
