The bestselling author of Crack in the Sky brings to life Custer’s legacy as never before in the start of a triumphant trilogy.
From the battlefield to the homefront, they were the proud and passionate inheritors of a glorious frontier, their fates linked to the star of one ambitious, enigmatic—and tragic—man. Few names of the American frontier resonate like that of George Armstrong Custer. His fiery temperament and irrepressible arrogance led him to glory on the field of battle . . . and tragedy at Little Big Horn.
At twenty-eight, Custer was already a legend. In 1868, the Civil War hero was sent west to lead a daring winter campaign against the Cheyenne. Among the hostiles captured at the battle of Washita was Monaseetah, a ripe, raven-haired firebrand of only seventeen summers. Though “Yellow Hair,” as her people called him, had taken her prisoner, it was he who was held hostage by her charms—and he who risked marriage, reputation, and career in her arms. For in love, as on any other battlefield, Custer would never know retreat.
