Here, award-winning Lakota historian Joseph M. Marshall III reveals the nuanced complexities that led up to and followed the battle. Until now, this account has been available only within the Lakota oral tradition. The Day the World Ended at Little Bighorn is required listening for anyone enthralled by the tale of the encounter that changed the scope of both America and the American landscape.
"Marshall's thoughtful reflections and rich detail (much of it drawn from the oral stories of unidentified Lakota elders)...immerse the reader in the experience of a once free people wrestling with an uncertain destiny." ( Publishers Weekly)
