9780712666947: Son Of The Morning Star: General Custer and the Battle of Little Bighorn
Quatrième de couverture :

'General George Armstrong Custer was a brave, ambitious, stupid cavalryman. Bravely, ambitiously and stupidly he rode with under 70 troopers into the greatest war party the Indians ever assembled in North America, mustering some 20, 000 braves. He and his band were wiped out. . Evan S. Connell is a novelist and he has brought a novelist's audacity to the construction of Son of the Morning Star, a civilized and compassionate history. This is a magnificent book. ' Financial Times

Custer's Last Stand is amongst the most enduring events in American history - more than a hundred years after the fact, books continue to be written and people continue to argue about even the most basic details surrounding the Little Bighorn. Evan S. Connell, whom Joyce Carol Oates has described as 'one of our most intersting and intelligent American writers', wrote what continues to be the most reliable - and compulsively readable - account of the subject. Connell makes good use of his research and novelist's eye for story and detail to recreate the heroism, foolishness and savagery of this crucial chapter in the history of the West.

'A new American classic.' Time

'Son of the Morning Star fits into none of the classifications of books about Custer. It is unique and for that reason should endure.' Dee Brown, author of Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee

'A scintillating book, thoroughly researched and brilliantly constructed.' Wall Street Journal

'Vivid and evocative. It leaves the reader astonished.' Washington Post
