Read full description of the books:
On a scorching June Sunday in 1876, thousands of Indian warriors - Lakota Sioux, Cheyenne and Arapaho - converged on a grassy ridge above the valley of Montana's Little Bighorn River. On the ridge five companies of United States cavalry - 262 soldiers, comprising officers and troopers - fought desperately but hopelessly. When the guns fell silent, no soldier - including their commanding officer, Lt Col. George Armstrong Custer - had survived.
Custer's Last Stand is among the most enduring events in American history - 130 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 research and novelist's eye for story and detail to re-create the heroism, foolishness and savagery of this crucial chapter in the history of the West.

Read information about the authorEvan S. Connell, over the last half century, has published nineteen books of fiction, poetry, and essays, several of which—including the best-sellers Mrs. Bridge and Mr. Bridge, and the erudite, anecdotal, and totally unique nonfiction book Son of the Morning Star—are American classics. I've admired his work for many years, since first reading Diary of a Rapist, and was happy for a chance to interview him for Bookforum. I was told he doesn't, as a matter of principle, use a computer, so e-mail was out of the question; and he would prefer not to be bothered with phone calls from journalists and strangers. So this interview proceeded the old-fashioned way, complete with cordial, almost formal introductory letters: via mail between my home in the mountains of Virginia and his home in Santa Fe, New Mexico, during late August and early September. Our dialogue—my half written on a laptop, his on a 1950s typewriter he uses to write all of his work—covered fiction, history, inspiration, his thoughts on the relationship between form and subject matter, America, hypocrisy, publishing, and writers he likes (but does not admire).
