Description: "‘Gold! Custer's found gold!’ The news spread like wildfire, and none of the greedy prospectors seemed to care that this wealth was on land that the Government had granted to the Indians by solemn treaty. Custer found the gold and Custer died for it – but was his enterprise as heroic as legend makes it? Another exciting, well-researched historical book by the author of North Against the Sioux and The Longhorn Trail."
Illustrated with two double-spread b&w maps.
Pictorial covers are in very good condition for their age, although there is a minor loss to the spine near the top, and the tail has been bumped with enough force to have caused creasing. Apart from pp.105-110, which have a small ink stain extending from their edges, the book is in superb internal condition. Pages are very lightly tanned, completely free from foxing, and tightly bound.
Measures 17.5 cm × 11 cm (7″ × 4.4″). 12mo. 280 pp. + a page of facts about George Armstrong Custer + brief biography of the author + 2 pp. detailing related books by the publisher.
