Custer, the Seventh Cavalry, and the Little Big Horn - A Bibliography (Hardcover, New): Michael F. O'Keefe Custer, the Seventh Cavalry, and the Little Big Horn - A Bibliography (Hardcover, New)
Michael F. O'Keefe; Foreword by Robert M. Utley
R2,726 Discovery Miles 27 260 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

Since the shocking news first broke in 1876 of the Seventh Cavalry's disastrous defeat at the Little Big Horn, fascination with the battle--and with Lieutenant George Armstrong Custer--has never ceased. Widespread interest in the subject has spawned a vast outpouring of literature, which only increases with time. This two-volume bibliography of Custer literature is the first to be published in some twenty-five years and the most complete ever assembled.
Drawing on years of research, Michael O'Keefe has compiled entries for roughly 3,000 books and 7,000 articles and pamphlets. Covering both nonfiction and fiction (but not juvenile literature), the bibliography focuses on events beginning with Custer's tenure at West Point during the 1850s and ending with the massacre at Wounded Knee in 1890. Included within this span are Custer's experiences in the Civil War and in Texas, the 1873 Yellowstone and 1874 Black Hills expeditions, the Great Sioux War of 1876-77, and the Seventh Cavalry's pursuit of the Nez Perces in 1877.
The literature on Custer, the Battle of the Little Big Horn, and the Seventh Cavalry touches the entire American saga of exploration, conflict, and settlement in the West, including virtually all Plains Indian tribes, the frontier army, railroading, mining, and trading. Hence this bibliography will be a valuable resource for a broad audience of historians, librarians, collectors, and Custer enthusiasts.

'You do not lead by hitting people over the head-that's assault, not leadership.' - Dwight D. Eisenhower What would George Washington think of today's 24-hour news cycle? While the Founding Fathers were strong proponents of a free press, they may have been unnerved at seeing their every gaffe mocked on Twitter. Why not take a break from breaking news and spend a moment revisiting the words of some of the greatest leaders the world has known? The Essential Wisdom of the World's Greatest Leaders gathers hundreds of quotations from more than two hundred leaders. Within these pages you'll find presidents, scholars, and philanthropists; jurists, generals, and activists; saints, scientists, and students. The selections are arranged thematically and illuminate the intellect, character, determination, and particular genius of these remarkable men and women. In this book: Abraham Lincoln extols the value of freedom and truth. Winston Churchill ponders the strength that comes from suffering. Frederick Douglass speaks passionately about the evils of inequality. Hillary Clinton advocates for the primacy of human rights. Malala Yousafzai offers insight into the precious gift of education. The Essential Wisdom of the World's Greatest Leaders is a powerful and thought-provoking collection that invites us to put down our phones and spend some quality time with the extraordinary women and men who have each left an indelible mark on our world.
