Had Tom Custer not been overshadowed by his more famous brother, he might well have become one of the more notable characters and military officers in the American West. Despite winning two Medals of Honor, his legendary feud with Rain-In-The-Face, the shooting scrape with James Butler "Wild Bill" Hickok in Hays City and many other exciting incidents. Tom has taken a back seat to George in the minds of readers and has held but marginal interest for historians -- until Now! Author Roy Bird takes us inside a life-long journey of an impassioned love-hate relationship of two brothers whose intense rivalry in hunting, military skills, business and even romance would span from their boyhood farm to their heroic end at the Little Bighorn, where they were, as always, together. Years of painstaking research has yielded more detail of Tom's life and adventures than ever thought possible while at the same time shining new lights into George's as well. Book jacket.
