On the Custer Trail is a history/travel book that retraces the last campaign of Lt. Col. George Armstrong Custer from Fort Abraham Lincoln in North Dakota to the Little Bighorn Valley in Montana.
Utilizing extensive biographical material, old journals, letters, newspaper articles and current roadmaps, writer Rod Timanus, author of On the Crockett Trail, mapped out and traveled a driving route closely following the 7th Cavalry's ride of 1876.
With a mixture of personal observation, biographical sketches and historical narrative, the book presents insights into the military career of Custer and provides information, hours of operation, history and photographs of historic sites, restorations and areas of interest in Ohio, New York, North Dakota and Montana that relate to his life and last journey.
On the Custer Trail will prove an interesting addition to the literature about George Armstrong Custer and a handy guide for anyone wishing to retrace his last ride.
