Eager to clear his name from the ignominy of his last stand -
but forced to do so incognito, under the clever pseudonym Armstrong
- Custer comes across evildoings in the mysterious Montana town of
Bloody Gulch, which a ruthless Indian trader runs as his own
personal fiefdom, with rumors of muder, slavery, and buried
Armstrong is a rip-roaring tale of action, adventure, and hilarity as the ridiculously handsome, astonishingly brave, and highly susceptible milk-drinking cavalryman travels through the untamed West.
The Custer of the West Series begins here - and it's a wild ride you won't want to miss.
"The world has a new hero - actually an old hero
reimagined - George Armstrong Custer, in this delightfully funny
alternative history that's better, or at least happier, than the
real thing." - WINSTON GROOM, bestselling author of Forrest Gump
and El Paso
"Droll satire, this is the West as it might have been if the Sioux hadn't saved us." - STEPHEN COONTS, bestselling author of Flight of the Intruder and Liberty's Last Stand
"If Custer died for our sins, Armstrong resurrects him for our delight. Not just the funniest book ever written about an Indian massacre, but laugh out loud funny, period. The best historical comic adventure since George MacDonald Fraser's Flashman." - PHILLIP JENNINGS, author of Nam-A-Rama and Goodbye Mexico
"Crocker has created a hilarious hero for the ages. Armstrong rides through the Old West setting right the wrongs, and setting wrong the rights, in a very funny cascade of satire, history, and even patriotism." - ROB LONG, Emmy- and Golden Globes-nominated screenwriter and co-executive producer of Cheers
What if Custer survived the Battle of the Little Bighorn?
What if he became a gun-for-hire?
And what if he made common cause with a troupe of cancan dancers, Chinese acrobats, an eyepatch-wearing rebel cardsharp, and a multilingual Crow scout?
