"An engrossing, thoughtfully researched, and tautly written account of a critical chapter in American history." - Los Angeles Times With a fantastic body of work that includes In the Heart of the Seaand Pulitzer Prize finalist Mayflower, Nathaniel Philbrick has emerged as a historian with a unique ability to bring history to life. The Last Standis Philbrick's monumental reappraisal of the epochal clash at the Little Bighorn in 1876 that gave birth to the legend of Custer's Last Stand. Bringing a wealth of new information to his subject, as well as his characteristic literary flair, Philbrick details the collision between two American icons- George Armstrong Custer and Sitting Bull-that both parties wished to avoid, and brilliantly explains how the battle that ensued has been shaped and reshaped by national myth.
Nathaniel Philbrick is the bestselling author of Mayflower, In the Heart of the Sea and Sea of Glory. He lives in Nantucket.
