Baker & Taylor The battle of Little Big Horn is seen through the eyes of U.S. soldier-turned-Cheyenne warrior Mason Hall, the "Nighthawk," and journalist Adam Garrett, describing events leading up to the inevitable clash and containing a new theory about Custer's death. Reprint.
In this sequel to Thunder in the Dawn, Flaming Sky covers the battle of Little Big Horn and its aftermath as never before.
Mason Hall, once a soldier in the U.S. Army, is now a Cheyenne warrior called Nighthawk. At his side is the mixed-blood woman, Ghostwind, a prophet and seer of the forthcoming battle--a battle in which Sioux, Cheyenne, and other tribes unite behind the legendary leaders Crazy Horse and Two Moon to defend their land against the white man.
On the other side of events is Adam Garrett, a journalist working under cover for the Grant administration. When he sets out with two Arikara scouts to catch up with Custer's command, Garrett is in turn pursued by his fiancée, Ann Malone, who fears for his life.
All threads lead to the inevitable clash at Little Big Horn, the most poignant battle in the history of the American West, and to George Armstrong Custer and his counterpart, the famous Sitting Bull.
