About the Book

"Interest in the 'Days of '76' shows now sign of abating, and why should it? The skirmish at Warbonnet Creek pitted the Indian-fighting U.S Army against Cheyenne warriors intent on joining the victors of the Little Big Horn. With the renowned Buffalo Bill Cody as its central figure, the action of July 17, 1876, almost inevitably passed into legend. Now back in print in this revised and updated edition, Paul Hedren's First Scalp for Custer remains the definitive work on this small, yet memorable episode. Hedren places the fight in its proper context, the 'end of the beginning' of the Great Sioux War."—Eli Paul, author of Blue Water Creek and the First Sioux War, 1854-1856
