Staff Reviews


I expect that nearly all of us are familiar with the tale Little
Bighorn, it’s the stuff of childhood tails of cowboys and Indians. Many
of us know the familiar names; George Armstrong Custer & Sitting
Bull. However in “The Last Stand” we’re introduced to the men behind
the names. We learn of the fiercely independent Sitting Bull who made a
name for himself at the age of 14 when he led fellow Lakota warriors
into battle against the Crow. We learn of a General Custer who was
equally obsessed with taming the west as he was with his own
self-promotion. Custer seemed just as concerned about a speaking tour,
planned for the weeks after the battle of Little Bighorn, as he was with
the Battle itself. More than anything else we learn, as Philbrick said
himself, “that nothing ended at the Little Bighorn”. This is Philbrick
at his best!
