"General Custer Indian Fighter" comprises (4) complete volumes written by General George Custer & his wife Elizabeth Custer; covering the period from the end of the American Civil War in 1865 to the Custer Massacre in 1876. In more than 600 pages, with more than 491,000 words, and 90 images, two first-person eyewitnesses paint a picture of cavalry life & Plains Indians life during this period.

In Book I, "My Life On The Plains Or Personal Experiences With Indians" General Custer relates his career from 1865 to 1872. He includes taking command of the newly formed 7th Cavalry, their training & battles, the life of the cavalryman in garrison & on campaign, & his views on the life & culture of the Plains tribes.

In Book II, "Tenting On The Plains Or General Custer In Kansas & Texas" Mrs Custer, who accompanied her husband to all his postings, relates the story from 1865-67. In Book III, "Following the Guidon" she continues the story to 1870, then in Book IV, "Boots And Saddles Or Life In Dakota With General Custer" she takes the account up to the tragedy at the Battle of the Little Big Horn in 1876.

Although both General Custer & Elizabeth portray his decisions & movements in the best possible light for his reputation, they convey the most accurate first-hand view of the struggle with the Plains tribes during this period.

Mrs Custer, in particular, presents a complete view of the life of the cavalrymen & the Indians since she had access to both Custer's records, the memories of the surviving participants & the official Government reports, while Custer had only his own experiences to draw on.

Here in one volume, "General Custer Indian Fighter: My Life On The Plains Or Personal Experiences With Indians, Tenting On The Plains Or General Custer In Kansas & Texas, Following the Guidon, & Boots And Saddles Or Life In Dakota With General Custer" is the complete story, for one low price, of one of the most fascinating periods in Western American History.

Additionally, short biographies of Custer & his wife are included.
