This is a stated first edition of Miller's important book about the battle of Little Big Horn. Miller spent decades living with and interviewing Sioux and Cheyenne people who had survived the battle and compiled their testimonies into this book, which marked a turning point in American attitudes toward Custer as an aggressor rather than a martyr. Good. Item #1623
