Country Roads magazine

“Thomas’s painstaking analysis and in-depth research help paint vivid descriptions of the Canadians who fought with Custer. The challenges of living on the American frontier and life in the military are presented in sometimes stark detail. As the book builds to the climax of the battle at Little Big Horn, the action moves quickly.”
