Jim Berry (writer) Val Mayerik (art)
This thrilling tale details the day of The Battle at The Little Big Horn through the eyes of Greenhaw, a 7th Cavalry scout on one side of the battlefield, and Slowhawk, a young Lakota warrior on the other. Featuring appearances of Sitting Bull, G.A. Custer, and Crazy Horse, as well as generous portions of meticulously researched history on every page, the book's art has been lauded as "Tremendous... Beautiful. Each panel and page could easily be a piece of solo art hanging on someone's wall."
"Page after page of glorious illustrations. The way Berry chooses to integrate individuals requires strong visual characterization, and Mayerik also supplies that."
-Slings & Arrows
"Featuring appearances of Sitting Bull, G.A. Custer, and Crazy Horse, as well as generous portions of meticulously researched history on every inherently fascinating page, Of Dust & Blood: The Battle at Little Big Horn is a compelling and memorable read from first page to last."
-Midwest Book Review
"Rendered with staggering virtuosity by Mayerik, the smaller moments and incidents contributing to the greater clash we all think we know are beguiling and breathtaking in their warmth and humanity, magnificently underscoring Berry's incisive questioning of the point and merit of the battle."
