Summary
Little is written about the events that ensued after Custer's last stand at the Battle of Little Big Horn, and its effect on the Native Sioux and the US Army's eventual sucess. Historian Hedren brings light to the cost of winning a battle, but losing on a much grander scale. From the slaughtering of the buffalo to forcing the Lakota Sioux and Northern Cheyenne off the land, the loss of a way of life and the ensuing generation's attempt at coping are presented and investigated in this account.
