Marching to Valhalla: A Novel of Custer's Last Days
"A TERRIFIC YARN . . . Marching to Valhalla is written as though it were a long-lost diary of Custer's, leading up to his fatal battle. It is a very personal view."
In his New York Times bestselling novel Dances with Wolves, Michael Blake created an unforgettable saga of white and Native American cultures. Now in Marching to Valhalla, Blake unfolds the story of the final months of General George Armstrong Custer, a story that illuminates the epic sweep of his entire life--his career, his passions, his legacy to the American west.
Here is Custer as we've never seen him before--reckless soldier, bold lover of women, ardent husband, devoted commander, expert Indian killer. A stirring tribute to an American hero and an intimate portrait of a brilliant, flawed man, Michael Blake's Marching to Valhalla is an absolutely stunning novel.
"A startling novel about the year's most popular literary subject."
