The Battle of the Little Big Horn, 1976, Series 707


The Battle of the Little Big Horn, 1976, Series 707.

This is the 4th and last book in the Pirates and Wild West series, 707.  It was both written and beautifully illustrated by Frank Humphris.  Except for ‘Pirates’ the books in this series all deal with topics to do with the Wild West – and were written as well as illustrated by Frank Humphris.  This is because Humphris was an aficionado of all things ‘cowboys and indians’.  He was an honarary member of an Indian tribe and was also honorary Sheriff of of a small town in the USA.   Although written at a time when American ‘westerns’ dominated tv series and films, this book is written sensitively and avoids a lot of the stereotypes of the day.  This book is the hardest of the 4 to find.  It was subsequently published with the subtitle, Custer’s Last Stand, as the main title and a different cover pictue – presumably to ramp up the drama and improve sales.
