'Crazy Horse and Custer' by Stephen Ambrose.
Interesting read. I visited the Little Bighorn/Greasy Grass a few years back. Have always been fascinated by the events of that day. Tashunka Witco, the Oglala's 'Strange Man,' and G. A. Custer were both warriors born and destined to clash. Weird fact...the Cheyenne and Sioux and Blackfeet hated Custer but didn't know until after the battle that it was he they were facing. Also, the entire battle lasted perhaps twenty minutes, half an hour.
Custer got 'Siouxed.' And I don't mean by lawyers.
All that we see or seem
Is but a dream within a dream. - Edgar Allen Poe
It's the olden lure, it's the golden lure, it's the lure of the timeless things. - Robert Service
For the myth is the foundation of life; it is the timeless schema, the pious formula into which life flows when it reproduces its traits out of the unconscious. - Thomas Mann
Eventually, all things merge into one, and a river runs through it. The river was cut by the world's great flood and runs over from the basement of time. On some of the rocks are timeless raindrops. - Norman Maclean
