Robert Skimin, whom The San Diego Union called a master storyteller, is the author of Chikara! (1984), which won the prestigious Ohioana Book Award, Gray Victory (1988), Apache Autumn (1993), Ulysses S. Grant, A Novel (1999), Custer's Luck (2001), and Footprints of Heroes: from the American Revolution to the War in Iraq (2005). He lives in El Paso, Texas.From Library Journal:
Since most people already know what happened at the Little Big Horn, anyone writing a fictional account of the famous battle must do more than recount the details of Custer's last stand. By bold invention and skillful adaptation of the diverse threads of legend, lore, and history, Skimin (Ulysses S. Grant: A Novel) has woven a surprisingly unified account of events leading up to the climactic battle. The story is virtually plotless; Skimin spends the bulk of the book developing individual charactersACuster; his wife, Libbie; Sitting Bull; and Crazy HorseAadding flesh and blood, frailties and foibles to familiar names and making three-dimensional historical figures most of us only know from school textbooks. Bound to be popular with fans of historical fiction; recommended for public libraries.AA.J. Anderson, GSLIS, Simmons Coll., Boston
