Riassunto: In Marching To Valhalla, Michael Blake turns his storyteller's eye on George Armstrong custer, West Pointer, youngest Union general of the Civil War, horseman, passionate lover, explorer, ardent husband, and, most famously, Indian hunter. In Blake's pages, Custer emerges as a dashing, driven soldier, suspicious of his friends, respectful of his enemies, and ever unable to feel quite alive in the civilian world.

Composed in the form of Custer's journal, Marching To Valhalla is an impeccable merging of fact and fiction, a powerfull evocation of our bloody past, and a tribute to the endurance of a human heart facing adversity and disaster. A masterpiece of Michael Blake's novel is a tragic romance that reveals a Custer never before imagined, and lets us finally contemplate the twisting, uncharted paths to glory and doom.

Recensione: Like a vampire who won't die, Custer rises once again from the grave. In the 1970s, a wave of books and movies, most notably the film "Little Big Man" and the book Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee, seemed to have finally driven a wooden stake through the heart of that particular myth, transforming Custer from legendary hero to monstrous megalomaniac and racist. March to Valhalla hauls Custer back out of the coffin, seemingly as good as new. Written by Michael Blake, author of Dances With Wolves, March to Valhalla comes in the form of a diary that Custer supposedly wrote in the five weeks before his death. In Blake's incarnation, Custer rides again, a fearless, noble, warrior with a flair for romance.
