Description
Georgia, 1898: On what may be the last day of his life, Captain Frederick Benteen the man who, in the minds of many Americans, might have saved Custers Seventh Cavalry from death at Little Bighorn receives a letter from an ambitious boy offering to restore his reputation. In the years since, Benteen has silently watched as the public canonized Custer for dying and cursed Benteen for surviving.

Now, at last, as he begins to put down some account of those two horrific days pinned down on a ridge in Montana, Benteen finds himself haunted by his lost companions: Star-Gazer, Handsome Jack, the gentle bugler De Rudio, and the Choir, a host of misfits who hover at the edges of the action. Benteen struggles to untangle his own story, his own worth, from the grand narrative of history and the nine tenths nothing" that make up battle.

Funny, moving, rich in character and incident, this acclaimed novel avoids the bloody battle scenes and maudlin romance that characterize much fiction about the American-Indian wars in favor of an unsparing and poetic story that explores what it means to be a soldier then and now.
