About this title

Synopsis:

In Custer and Me, renowned western historian and expert on historic preservation, Robert M. Utley, turns his talents to his own life and career. Through lively personal narrative, Utley offers an insider’s view of Park Service workings and problems, both at regional and national levels, during the Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon, Ford, and Carter administrations. Utley also details the birth of the Western History Association, early national historic-preservation programs, and the many clashes over symbolic possession” of what is now the Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument. Readers will discover how a teenager smitten with Custermania came as an adult to appreciate the full complexity of the Battle of the Little Bighorn and its interpretation and to research and write narrative histories of the American West that have appealed to popular audiences while winning highest honors from the scholarly and writing communities.

About the Author:

Robert M. Utley, former chief historian for the National Park Service, is the author of fifteen books, including award-winning biographies of Custer, Sitting Bull, and Billy the Kid. He lives with his wife, Park Service veteran and historian Melody Webb, in Georgetown, Texas.
