"When I taught American literature at the Univ. of Iowa, a colleague taught a 'Great Westerns' course devoted to novels. Vardis Fisher's MOUNTAIN MAN, Alan LeMay's THE SEARCHERS, A.B. Guthrie's THE BIG SKY. Charles Portis's TRUE GRIT. Clearly Westerns can be literature. I suspect that Johnny D. Boggs would be on the syllabus today." -- David Morrell, best-selling author of First Blood and The Brotherhood of the Rose
A STORY OF THE LITTLE BIG HORN
2014 Spur Award Finalist for Best Western Historical Novel
"… this is an enthralling book, right up there with … Will Henry's No Survivors (1950) and Evan S. Connell's Son of the Morning Star (1984)."
--*Starred Review* Booklist
"Boggs's approach uses the fictionalized narratives of historical participants … and he carries it off beautifully ..." -- Publishers Weekly.
Johnny D. Boggs turns the battlefield itself into the main character in this historical look at Custer's Last Stand, told from the viewpoints of more than 40 men and women from both sides of the battle.
