Greasy Grass: a story of the Little Big Horn

Image of item
Large Print Book

First Edition.

It was referred to in the national press and by historians as the Battle at the Little Bighorn or the Custer Massacre. The Indians involved in the conflict termed it in their unwritten languages the Greasy Grass Fight. What actually happened in that battle seems chaos and confusion. Custer was an idiot. He was a hero. He did everything right (just everything went wrong). He did everything wrong (and nothing went right). There were fifteen hundred warriors waiting to engage the 7th Cavalry. There were twelve thousand. Johnny D. Boggs brings the events and personalities involved in the battle to life by a series of first-hand accounts, and it is a work of fiction only because some of the voices heard such as General Custer and Crazy Horse left no written record, but their testimony is recorded as the reader moves from the perspective of one participant to another.
