Summary
Fate entwined the lives of General George A. Custer, U.S.A., that flamboyant "Yellow Hair" of Civil War and Indian fighting fame, and John Clayton, one-time Colonel of the Confederate Cavalry, later gambler, gunfighter, superlative horseman, and civilian scout for the U.S. Army in the Indian campaign. Clayton ran the whole gamut of frontier activity till final, disillusioned and embittered by the Army's two-faced Indian policy and the crookedness of its reservation agents, his sympathies turned to the red men. Captured after the Fetterman Massacre by Crazy Horse, the great Sioux war chief, and adopted into the tribe, he quickly "went Indian," married the excitingly lovely medicine-woman, Star of the North. Then for nine action-packed years, the ex-Confederate officer, now known as Walking Hawk, harried the bluecoat invaders as a painted brave. At last came the fatal 25th of June, 1876 and the tragically glorious climax of the tale. As "Yellow Hair," the show-off boy general, his guidons flying in the sunlight across the Greasy Grass, galloped five troops of his peerless Seventh Cavalry into oblivion against the massed might of the Sioux Nation, the relations of these two men were resolved. And through Clayton's eyes, in this final meeting with Custer at the Little Big Horn, the strangest military mystery of modern times emerges with authentic clarity in a stirring re-creation of epic historic action. While the story of Clayton is fictional, the historical background of the Indian campaigns is authentic -- Book jacket
