Beautifully written and filled with unforgettable characters, Little Bighorn brings to life the American West and its heartbreaking history, brilliantly portraying the flawed and tormented Custer.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Little Bighorn is an American masterwork of the ultimate triumph of love and redemption during the so-called ‘Indian Wars’—surely one of the most detestable eras in all of America’s history. Hough is relentlessly truthful, unfailingly entertaining, and transcendently generous.”
—Howard Frank Mosher, award-winning author of Where the Rivers Flow North, Disappearances, Northern Borders, and others

Little Bighorn is every bit as remarkable as Larry McMurtry’s Lonesome Dove. The characters are vivid, the tension palpable, and the dialogue unfeigned. John Hough Jr. is one the great American novelists alongside Cormac McCarthy and Jonathan Franzen.”
—Robert Dugoni, bestselling author of The Jury Master, Damage Control, and others

“John Hough’s last book, Seen the Glory, was one of the best Civil War novels I’ve ever read. Now in Little Bighorn he’s turned his superb storytelling talents to the epic story of Custer and the Little Bighorn. I read the last hundred pages in one page-turning and finger-burning frenzy, then put the book down and reluctantly returned to our modern world, sorry there wasn’t more to read.”
—James Donovan, author of the bestselling A Terrible Glory: Custer and the Little Bighorn and The Blood of Heroes

Little Bighorn is a potent blend of research and imagination. John Hough has forever changed my view of George Armstrong Custer in this stellar, riveting novel.”
—Ron Rash, award-winning author of The Cove and Serena
