Book: Crossing the Plains with Custer
Many of the Indian scouts who accompanied Custer's 1874 Expedition were intimately familiar with the high plains between Fort Lincoln and the Black Hills, but the only available maps contained large gaps or inaccuracies.
The expedition would not only begin to change that, it would have far-reaching historical consequences as well. The Black Hills gold rush that followed was a contributing cause of the Little Big Horn battle, reverberating through the years to Wounded Knee and beyond.
