Format: Mass Market Paperback
This brick has over 600 pages but it's never a tedious read. Reaching the pinnacle of the Plainsmen-series in this volume Terry Johnston wades deep into history and excels with his impressive knowledge of the area and the correct historical facts. Little known history is restored and fictionalized without, looking from a historical perspective, loosing its truth, a feat Johnston has not always succeded in. The only tiny fault is that Johnston repeats himself too often at the end of the novel, repeating word by word a earlier paragraph, clearly something the editor should've discovered before it was printed. ****(*) on the barometer.

The waning days for the great warriors of the plains July 11 2010
By New England Pat - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
The author's novel details the U.S. military's war effort against the Indians after General Custer's defeat at the Little Big Horn and the army's efforts to hunt down the red men before they scatter to the hills or back to the agencies. The book details the exciting Sibley Scout and two engagements, at Warbonnet Creek and Slim Buttes, which are are studied at length. The novel also depicts a befuddled and dispirited army in search of a wily and desperate foe and hints at dissension between Generals Terry and Crook as tempers grow short as the long hot summer drags on. Students of the Sioux War of 1876 will enjoy this fine chronicle of western history.

i like the fact that he told the real story that was told by others, both the sides of the battles.
Start from the beginning. April 4 2014
By Robert Gamber - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a great book if you're interested in the history of the plains wars. Highly recommend that you start the series from the beginning. The hero takes part in every campaign after he leaves the Union Cavalry after the Civil War. If you jump in the middle, Mr Johnson does his best tying them together using brief summaries of situations from his previous works. I started with the third book in the series but went back and have been reading them in order since. I found them all excellent.
Custer's massacre Jan. 4 2014
By Harry Joseph Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
I love reading books about history. It seems to that General Custer met his Waterloo at Big horn because he refused to listen to the warning about the Indians gathering in to such large numbers that they didn't even stand a chance.
