Comments

¶ An unusually elaborate production and story that begins in New York at Delmonico’s in 1873 and takes the reader through the plains and to the scene of Custer's final battle, lavishly illustrated with realistic photographs and classic Western art. Though fiction, Myrick goes to great length to make this a realistic story based on fact - particularly involving the incidents about Custer at Little Big Horn.
