Libbie (Real Women of the American West, Book 1) by Judy Alter

Her name is Elizabeth Bacon Custer, but her friends call her Libbie. The newly-wedded wife of General George Armstrong Custer, Libbie is small and delicate, accustom to the "finer things in life," seemingly unfit for the rigors of army life.

But she refuses to be separated from the man she loves.

Here is her story, a first-person narrative based on three books written by the real-life Libbie and surviving correspondence. Experience her sacrifices and hair-raising adventures, the hijinx Autie (the nickname Libbie gave to her husband) played on her, regretted flirtations, and a rare and remarkable love that would not be tamed.

"A wondrous, intimate story of an unsung heroine of the West." ~Romantic Times
"Rings authentically true.... Brilliant and memorable.... Kudos to Ms. Alter for a refreshingly unique story." ~Affair de Coeur
"Libbie is probably the book Mrs. Custer would have written had she not been determined to protect her husband's name." ~Elmer Kelton

Reading this book was like visiting with "Libbie" and hearing her story first hand. The sharing of her experiences from her young years to the time of the Battle of the Little Big horn was very realistic and full of information not found in the history books. Judy Alter did a fine job of humanizing an historical figure and bringing to light the relationship of two remarkable people. I was a bit skeptical at first, but soon realized that the story was fascinating both from the standpoint of history and a great entertaining read.
