Andrew Huebner makes his debut with a novel that Booklist praises as "simply told and simply devastating." In American by Blood, Huebner gives a fictional account of three scouts after they discover the results of Custer's last stand at Little Big Horn. Ordered to follow the trail of the retreating Sioux Indians, they lead their fellow cavalrymen into bloody battles in which no life is spared. But the horror and the bloodshed the three witness are enough to make any soldier lose his mind. ".inherently moving ..."-New York Times Book Review

"Henry Strozier's clear vocals give credibility to Huebner's horrific story of vengeance and pathos in the aftermath of the Little Bighorn Massacre. Strozier portrays the scouting party of James Bradley, who was the first to discover the massacre; William Gentle, who is fascinated by the Indians they're hunting; and August Huebner, who is escaping the slums of the recently industrialized East. With seamless pacing and a strong, gritty voice Strozier adds dimension to the many male characters by altering his tone, adopting various regional accents, and varying the intensity of his delivery. As their bloody mission slowly drives the men mad, listeners will find themselves embroiled in this grim, merciless story filled with rape, torture, mutilation--all the carnage of war. S.C.A.
