Descripción

BRAND NEW & COLLECTIBLE, Dustjacket under mylar. Biography of George Armstrong Custer (1839 - 1876) of the disastrous military engagement known as the Battle of the Little Bighorn. Son of the Morning Star is his Sioux appelation. Masterful work by novelist, poet, and short story writer Evan S. Connell (1924 -). Judicious blend of scholarly "bare bones" approach mindful of human elements. Well-rounded and balanced approach renders the volume both a biography of Custer and an anthropological study of Plains Indian world perspective. A military history, and character study of the principal protagonists in the historical event. Small wonder the book inspired a television mini-series. N° de ref. de la librería 012691

Sinopsis:

Custer's Last Stand is among the most enduring events in American history--more than one hundred years after the fact, books continue to be written and people continue to argue about even the most basic details surrounding the Little Bighorn. Evan S. Connell, whom Joyce Carol Oates has described as "one of our most interesting and intelligent American writers," wrote what continues to be the most reliable--and compulsively readable--account of the subject. Connell makes good use of his meticulous research and novelist's eye for the story and detail to re-vreate the heroism, foolishness, and savagery of this crucial chapter in the history of the West.

Review:

On June 25, 1876, Gen. George Armstrong Custer and some 200 cavalrymen under his command blundered into a coulee along the banks of Montana's Little Bighorn River. They never came out; several thousand Cheyenne, Sioux, and Arapaho warriors saw to that. The name and the event of the Little Bighorn have subsequently entered into American mythology, reverberating throughout the nation's history. Custer's famous demise has yielded thousands of books, and Son of the Morning Star is exceptional among them: part anthropological study of Plains Indian life, part military history, and part character study of the principal actors in the Battle of the Little Bighorn, Evan Connell's work presents the first truly balanced account of Custer's career.
