One of the most fascinating classics ever written about the Battle of the Little Bighorn. Dr. Thomas Marquis spent many years getting to know and interviewing Native Americans who had fought against General Custer and the 7th Cavalry. This is the narrative of Chief Wooden Leg, given to Marquis late in Wooden Leg's life.

Long dismissed by historians, Little Bighorn scholars today believe the Indian accounts to be essential to an understanding of what went wrong at the Little Bighorn (and what went right for the Sioux and Cheyenne). Archaeology at the battlefield has born out the veracity of the Indian accounts and the contribution to history by Wooden Leg and Marquis is invaluable.

Included is a great deal of information about the life of the Cheyenne of Wooden Leg's time, his boyhood, his understanding of Indian medicine, a very detailed account of the June 25-26, 1876 battle with Custer, and more. This is a book you'll read more than once.

Every memoir of the American West provides us with another view of the movement that changed the country forever.
