Description

Marvin Woods' thoroughly researched chronicle follows the fascinating life of Frederick Francis Gerard, who is best known as Major General George Armstrong Custer's Indian Interpreter at the Battle of the Little Bighorn Expedition. Gerard built an impressive reputation as an Indian fighter who experienced many perils, yet was a strong advocate for the Indians friendly to the United States. Readers of this fascinating work will learn about the history of a famous battle, the nascent United States, and of early American history from an angle that is altogether different than what they may have read before.
