The Last Stand
Thursday, May 13, 2010
Bestselling author Nathaniel Philbrick tells the tale of two larger-than-life figures: Sitting Bull and George Armstrong Custer.
In The Last Stand: Custer, Sitting Bull, and the Battle of the Little Big Horn, he gives an account of the Battle of the Little Bighorn, which was, even in victory, the last stand for the Sioux and Cheyenne Indian nations. Within a few years, all the major tribal leaders would be confined to Indian reservations. It’s the archetypal story of the American West, one that continues to haunt our collective imagination.
