An Uncommon Enemy
On the day after Thanksgiving, 1868, George Custer and the Seventh Cavalry attack a sleeping Cheyenne village. During the senseless slaughter that follows, the men find Eden Murdock, a white woman presumed dead years before. Refusing to acknowledge that she was "rescued" from a "savage" society, Eden begins to set in motion events that will echo all the way to Little Bighorn.
