• General Custer's personal account of Native American encounters • Fascinating description of the true appearance and geographic characteristics of "the plains" after the Civil War

In 1874, just two years before General George A. Custer's death at Little Big Horn, a collection of his magazine articles was published as "My Life on the Plains." Custer, General in the U.S. Army’s Seventh Cavalry, wrote personal accounts of his encounters with Native Americans during the western Indian warfare of 1867-1869.

The collection was a document of its time and an important primary source for anyone interested in U.S. military affairs and the U.S. and Native American relations.
