Description
Acclaimed historian and New York Times best-selling author Nathaniel Philbrick has earned a National Book Award and Pulitzer Prize nomination for his extraordinary works. Here he carries readers back to the 1876 battle in Montana mythologized as "Custer's Last Stand." Focusing on the charismatic Sitting Bull and the recklessly brave George Armstrong Custer, Philbrick constructs a riveting narrative of the battle that became the archetypal story of the West.

display_description"An engrossing and tautly written account of a critical chapter in American history." —Los Angeles Times
Nathaniel Philbrick, author of In the Hurricane's Eye, Pulitzer Prize finalist Mayflower, and Valiant Ambition, is a historian with a unique ability to bring history to life. The Last Stand is Philbrick's monumental reappraisal of the epochal clash at the Little Bighorn in 1876 that gave birth to the legend of Custer's Last Stand. Bringing a wealth of new information to his subject, as well as his characteristic literary flair, Philbrick details the collision between two American icons- George Armstrong Custer and Sitting Bull-that both parties wished to avoid, and brilliantly explains how the battle that ensued has been shaped and reshaped by national myth.
