Very interesting and insightful book about the times. Elizabeth Custer has a nice writing style and keeps your interest unlike her husband whose book was dull and boring. The discussions of life on the plains back in the 1870's is spell binding. Weather, living conditions, friendships, Indian troubles etc. are all very interesting.

I love books that keep my interest and that I can sit and read and read and read. If I can get through a book in a couple of days it's only because it was well written and interesting and this book was just that - well written and interesting.

I am so thankful to have found this book by Libby Custer. It was very well written and gives the reader an unforgettable look into frontier life of the northern plains. I feel she wrote what she saw and felt. It is a story of immense importance and really should be read by everyone who is interested in the incredible sadness of Indian affairs and a time in the history of America. Written in vivid detail, I can't recommend highly enough.

A Great Historical Study For The Time Period

Elizabeth Bacon Custer wrote a great history of her life with Custer and the life of the General. The book is written from her point of view in that time's historical context. It is not the writing of an apologist; and remember, it was written in that time of the United States Army's subjugation of the plains Indians. Like Custer or not, the book details a part of our history. She shows to be a totally devoted wife, not just to her husband, but to his history and legacy. This is a fine read for anyone who is interested in not simply the Indian Wars of 2-centuries ago, but also the true devotion of a woman to her husband.

The content of this book is wonderful but the PRINT IN THIS PAPERBACK is minute! without a magnifying glass. I suggest you buy the Kindle edition. Otherwise Boots and Saddles is a wonderful account of life with the army on the Plains. Others have written about the story so I won't repeat but just tell you about the print in the paperback. So be warned.

Excellent book - interesting read and insights into what happened on the home front and camp during those times. Also, frank views from her give great insights into the general norms and thinking of the day.

I recently became quite interested in reading about Custer. I read his biography and then read this book written by his wife. I thoroughly enjoyed her book. It was interesting to read about General Custer through his wife's perspective and her experiences. It was well written and a very good read in my opinion.
Althought the opinions of Custer and life with the calvary are viewed through (very) rosy glasses, Mrs. G.A. Custer is a witty and prolific writer. She also gives little-known insight into everyday happenings in life on the prairie and how women survived the journey. Particularly interesting are the dynamics of relationships between women when living literally in the middle of nowhere, surviving the harshest of climates, with few friends, the same friends, for extended times. Also interesting is the relationship between people of color and the white soldiers. Custer is an enigma, and readers should read this book but also others ("Son of the Morning Star" is the best thus far) to get a glimpse at the man. Libby Custer falls into poetic verse at times, but this can be refreshing - there are not many writings of women in these times available.
