More Description

A classic account of life on the Western Frontier
Mrs Custer-Libby-the love of George Armstrong Custer's life is in some regard no less famous than her husband. They were in the truest sense 'a couple' and our understanding of their relationship has been enhanced by Elizabeth Custer's writing of her time in the company of her husband during his campaigning on the Western Plains against the Indian tribes. Custer was already a legend-The Boy General-during the Civil War. Elizabeth Custer's writing of his post-war career enhances both our view of him-and them-and brings with it an illumination of life with the United States army-including its many colourful personalities-on the frontier. Here then is the famous 7th Cavalry as viewed by its commander's wife. This touching account ends-inevitably-as Custer and his command ride out for their fateful encounter at Little Big Horn.
