The Battle of Little Bighorn in Montana in 1876 has become known as the quintessential clash of cultures between the Lakota Sioux and whites. The men who led the battle, Crazy Horse, Sitting Bull, and Colonel George A. Custer, have become the stuff of legends.

Here, award-winning Lakota historian Joseph M. Marshall III reveals the nuanced complexities that led up to and followed the battle. Until now, this account has been available only within the Lakota oral tradition. The Day the World Ended at Little Bighorn is required listening for anyone enthralled by the tale of the encounter that changed the scope of both America and the American landscape.

    " I could not put this book down. The author did a wonderful job telling the story. I think it was much more fascinating to get the Lakota perspective of what happened rather than "honoring" Custer for slaughtering these people. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Patty | 1/22/2014

    " I'd really like to give it a 3 1/2 star rating. I learned so much about the Lakota people, the history from their perspective at what happened at Little Big Horn and Wounded Knee had me hooked, very insightful. The first half of the book was full of the history of their people and what it was like to be Lakota, I enjoyed this part very much and can appreciate the rich culture they had. The second half got a little bogged down with too much stuff like literal translations of white man's words and basically how they have fit into the white man's world. I do agree that they were treated very poorly and there were many miscommunications due to language and pride of the Lakota and egos of the U.S. government. I know today it would have been handled very differently. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Leonard | 1/8/2014

    " Want to understand the Lakota? Read this book. The author gets a little pedantic, but he gives you a look into the soul of the Lakota. Especially the warrior culture of the Plains Indians. And helps you understand who they are today. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Daniel | 12/16/2013

    " Learn to look at things form the Indian perspective. It's embarassing the way we treated them. A good read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Steve Howes | 11/8/2013

    " I enjoyed this book even though it was somewhat of a rehash of other books I have read about the Battle of the Little Bighorn. It did however mean much more to me now that I have had a chance to visit the site and get a feel for the land and what actually happened. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marin | 10/23/2013

    " this was an interesting book on the events leading up to and after the battle of the little bighorn. it was written from more of a native american point of view which was a nice change. for the most part it was non biased and made some good points. overall a good read! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rae | 9/11/2013

    " I read this one out loud to my husband. We liked the first half of the book where it actually examined the Native side of the battle. The second half of the book was a little too political and not as historically interesting for us. Overall, though, a good read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carolyn | 7/7/2013

    " It was well written but could get repetitive in parts. Excellent view from the other side. Wish there was more written from this perspective. Quite educating. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary | 3/1/2013

    " There is not much in this book that will be surprising to those already familiar with Native American (particularly Lakota) history, but Marshall's excellent storytelling makes it worth reading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Debbi | 12/25/2012

    " This was a refreshing, gentle, and honest treatment of what life has been like for the Lakota since the Battle of the Little Bighorn. I strongly encourage you to have a read. A one-sided story is never the full story. I will read more of Marshall's works. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Hannah | 9/10/2012

    " An interesting account of the life and times of all people involved in this important piece of North American history. A bit dry at times, but an excellent look at what probably really happened. "
