Summary

Her name is Elizabeth Bacon Custer, but her friends call her Libbie. The newly-wedded wife of General George Armstrong Custer, Libbie is small and delicate, accustom to the "finer things in life," seemingly unfit for the rigors of army life.

But she refuses to be separated from the man she loves.

Here is her story, a first-person narrative based on three books written by the real-life Libbie and surviving correspondence. Experience her sacrifices and hair-raising adventures, the hijinx Autie (the nickname Libbie gave to her husband) played on her, regretted flirtations, and a rare and remarkable love that would not be tamed.

"Libbie is probably the book Mrs. Custer would have written had she not been determined to protect her husband's name." ~Elmer Kelton
