$55.00

DRAWING BATTLE LINES: THE MAP TESTIMONY OF CUSTER’S LAST FIGHT by Michael N. Donahue is Volume Eight in the BATTLE OF THE LITTLE BIG HORN SERIES. 413 pages, a comprehensive pictorial view of the Battle of the Little Big Horn based on drawings and maps made by participants and researchers, many of these maps never published, studied or even viewed by the general public. This over-sized book is organized into 4 sections:SOLDIER, WARRIOR, CIVILIAN, and MISCELLANEOUS, with each map-maker’s portrait (when available). Author Donahue has carefully analyzed each map providing a summary of its critical values and flaws. Only original maps and sketches by eyewitnesses or second generation researchers who interviewed participants were used. To better understand this volume, a contemporary aerial map and battle movement diagram have been included to help orient the reader who is unfamiliar with the battlefield and the geographic references. While this book might seem a cartographer’s delight, it is intended to create an historical accurate and visual study guide and is much more than just a book of maps. These literal battle lines in map form were drawn by those who had direct knowledge of this tragic episode in our nation’s history. 90 maps are reproduced, some in color. 400 oversized pages. Dust jacket art by author/artist Donahue, who is Chairman of the Art Department, Temple College, Temple, Texas. Michael Donahue is a Historical Interpreter and Park Ranger at the Little Bighorn National Monument where he has served for 18 summers. ISBN:9780912783451. $55.00
