"Custer" by Larry McMurtry
Hardcover, 178 pages
The book "Custer" is a short biography about Gen. George Armstrong Custer and the players and events leading up to the historic battle at Little Big Horn in 1876. There are plenty of photographs and illustrations included to connect the faces and places and this really adds to the time-travel mind-experience. Best of all, for a coffee-table book, Larry McMurtry provides us with a very readable biography. Experts on this subject will doubtlessly discover nothing new, but for lay-folks like myself, it was a revelation. McMurtry does recommend a few books much better than his for anyone wanting to dig deeper into the subject. But here, he simply gives us an interesting overview of the General and the goings-on during those tumultuous times in our country's history. "Custer" is for readers who want to start with a light meal, rather than have a full course. McMurtry gives us a fast and fascinating read and it satisfied an itch I didn't even know I had.
