Loved Matt's comprehensive review. I found myself wanting more about decisions made in battle, and more detail on Little Bighorn, maybe a Native American's account. I thought Barnett's conclusions regarding racism's role in the events were well supported, and I did like her portrayal of Libbie. I found Libbie to be more interesting than Custer.
