Colonel Rodney G. Thomas' Rubbing Out Long Hair showcases 30 different artists, 200 paintings/drawings with most in color, and incorporates battle participant narratives that compliments the art. These 200 images constitute the known Indian art about the battle at this time. Among the 200 images are the 63 Amos Bad Heart Bull drawings about the battle shown for the first time together outside of Helen Blish's A Pictographic History of the Oglala Sioux and with the never before seen Bad Heart Bull muslin painting of the battle; two little known Standing Bear paintings seen for the first time with the two well known paintings; two drawings by Rain In The Face not seen before; a painting by the Crow scout White Swan misattributed to a Lakota warrior for a century; the two sets of White Bull drawings shown together for the first time; and, the missing Red Horse drawing shown of course with the other 41 in the set. The art is most compelling and helps put to rest some of the most enduring myths about this battle. This is not another book about Custer but instead a more detailed study of the battle from the winners' point of view. It will serve as a guide for researching and exploring collections, both private and public, for additional art and narratives about the event. Extensively researched and documented, Rubbing Out Long Hair will be a major art and battle history reference for quite some time. Colonel Rodney G. Thomas, US Army, Retired. 344 pages, 253 illustrations with 161 in full color, 92 b/w. 9x12 softbound. ISBN: 978-0-615-31770-0. $50.00
