Nathaniel Philbrick brings a sailor's eye and an extraordinary knowledge of nineteenth-century maritime life to the landlocked tragedy of Custer and Sitting Bull. It’s hard to miss the parallels between Custer’s fate and that of the sailors on the ill-fated whaling ship ESSEX, as recounted in Philbrick’s notable IN THE HEART OF THE SEA. In THE LAST STAND, the polyglot army on the alien plains acts and drinks like the crew of a whaling ship. Philbrick sorts through the extensive and often-contradictory evidence of what happened at the Little Bighorn. Much of his narrative focuses on accounts of the battle. George Guidall provides an avuncular delivery as he tells the long and complicated story in a gruff, clear, and unhurried voice. Understanding what happened at the Little Bighorn requires a map. There are many available on the Internet. F.C. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2010]
