Pulitzer Prize winner Larry McMurtry crafts works synonymous with the grandeur and beauty of the American West. Here McMurtry turns his attention to George A. Custer, a complex man who has captivated historians for over a century. From graduating last in his class at West Point to leading the ill-fated 7th Cavalry in the attack at Little Bighorn, Custer forged a legacy- still very much alive today- as one of the West's most enduring historical figures.

"Henry Strozier gives a fine reading of this book by well-known Western author McMurtry. It's more or less the author's rambling musings on George Armstrong Custer, his infamous "Last Stand" (among other things Custer), and seemingly everything else about the West. The author lists several books at the beginning of his book that may be of interest to the listener. Anyone who wants to know more about Custer should read those books and skip this one. Henry Strozier has a deep, resonant, gravelly voice, and he delivers this production in a laid-back manner that suits the text. But there really isn't a whole lot to this book, which comes in at just under three hours. M.T.F. (c) AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine"
