Rumors of a campaign against Sitting Bull cut through the ranks like a cold wind. Who would lead the charge? In Bugles in the Afternoon, legendary Western writer Ernest Haycox relates a compelling tale of Custer’s famed Seventh Cavalry and its fate at the Battle of the Little Bighorn in a balanced mix of action, exposition, and history.

Originally published in 1943, this classic work is now back in print in a new paperback edition. Historian Richard W. Etulain examines the novel’s history and Haycox’s impact on a timeless genre in an original foreword. Ernest Haycox Jr. provides unique insight into his father’s writing regimen and commitment to authenticity in his introduction.
