About this title


Profiles the life of Custer, including his military brilliance during the Civil War and his death at the Battle of Little Bighorn


The source of our endless fascination with the legend of General Custer--the flamboyant general and brilliant tactician who led his troops into a bloody massacre--is perhaps as interesting as the story of the man himself. Why, more than 100 years later, are we still drawn to the story of Little Bighorn? In Touched By Fire, Louise Barnett reexamines the Custer story and finds that the answer may lie in racism and national pride. Her belief is that we still can't accept the fact that a band of Indians could bring down the white troops of a powerful nation.
