Recommended for: Everyone
Read in September, 2006

Delia Falconer can write history and men with astonishing authority. This is one book I would recommend everyone drop what they're doing and head to the local bookstore, get home quickly, no dawdling, pour a cold glass of something refreshing, and settle in, preferably on a comfy chair under a shade tree for a few hours with the reward of being held in the shimmer of Falconer's brilliant prose.

A little about the book: Imagine being reviled for surviving one of the Old West's mythic battles, Little Bighorn,only to witness Custer's myth as the fallen hero grow with each year. Imagine what this can do to a true warrior, a man's man, a soldier's soldier, a man such as Frederick Benteen. This book explores the troubled memories Benteen struggles to come to terms with, his regret, the men lost so foolishly, their lost lives and thoughts which only he holds.
