Number 5 in the
Montana and the West Series

   Nearly everyone has heard of Custer's Last Stand which took place on June 25th of 1876. Yet few of us know of the battle between the US Army and the Sioux & Cheyenne -- on the way to the more famous battle.
   Three columns of Army soldiers were marching toward the Little Big Horn River to route the Sioux from the Crow Indian tribal lands. One of the columns
-- never made it.

It was soon discovered that Crook's soldiers were fighting the famous Sioux Chief, Crazy Horse. Crook then retreated back toward Fort Fetterman, camping on Goose Creek in Wyoming and never reaching the Little Bighorn River. Custer's Last Stand took place a little over a week later and the battle gained infamy from that event, leaving
Crook's battle to history.

Series One
Custer Trail to the Little Bighorn


A series about, although not limited to Lt. Colonel George A. Custer and the Sioux War of 1876.

The series includes volumes selected to provide serious study of the American Indian Wars with views and perspectives never before available.

This also insures the general account of events as they unfold during the life of the Seventh Cavalry’s charismatic commander, which ended in the Battle of the Little Bighorn in 1876.

Each volume is handsomely produced in an 8 ½ x 11 format bound in red linen with gold stamping and provides detailed descriptions and unusual photographs of the participants and the trails they followed.

It is unlikely that an ensemble of gifted writers such as these, will ever again combine their literary, photographic and artistic skills and the intellectual curiosity required to produce works of this depth.
