George Armstrong Custer. The name evokes instant recognition in almost every American and in people around the world. No figure in the history of the American West has more powerfully moved the human imagination.

When originally published in 1988, Cavalier in Buckskin met with critical acclaim. Now Robert M. Utley has revised his best-selling biography of General George Armstrong Custer. In his preface to the revised edition, Utley writes about his summers (1947-1952) spent as a historical aide at the Custer Battlefield-as it was then known-and credits the work of several authors whose recent scholarship has illuminated our understanding of the events of Little Bighorn. He has revised or expanded chapters, added new information on sources, and revised the map of the battlefield.

Robert M. Utley is a retired Chief Historian of the National Park Service and has written over fifteen books on a variety of aspects of history of the American West. His writings have received numerous prizes, including the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Center's Wrangler Award, the Western Writers of American Spur Award, the Caughey Prize from the Western History Association, and the Samuel Eliot Morison Prize from the Society for Military History.


“Utley’s excellent study has set the new standard against which all future Custer biographies must be judged.”

American Indian Quarterly

“Utley combines a mastery of succinct, elegantly written narration with sound historical judgment based on deep understanding of the military and political milieu in which Custer operated.”

—Francis Paul Prucha,Illinois Historical Journal

“An evocative book that expands the historiography on Custer beyond the extremes of the past to a more balanced and appropriate place in American frontier history and popular culture.”
