Remember Little Bighorn: Indians, Soldiers, and Scouts Tell Their Stories

National Geographic publication, written by Paul Robert Walker.

For those of you who don't know Little Bighorn is the last battle of one Lt. Col. otherwise known as General Custer.  The story is told from different angles, siting diaries and oral tradition passed down through the generations.  The pictures and photographs only enhance the telling.  This is such a sad point in our history, at least for me, and it makes me so very angry how greed compelled a "noble" nation to attack and destroy those who were here first!!  The way the Native Americans were treated makes me very angry, so this was indeed an emotional read for me.
