On 25th of June 1876, George Armstrong Custer (Gary Cole) and the 7th Cavalry fought a bitter and bloody battle against the largest force of Indians in American history. This is the story of the Last Stand, and the men who fought it, both Indian and white. Custer, Sitting Bull and Crazy Horse, all of whom have passed into American myth and folklore. Beautifully retold from the point of view of both the US Cavalry and the Indians. Son of the Morning Star is the gripping story of the rise and fall of a ruthless hero, of his love, his hate, his brutal leadership, and above all, his bloody determination to destroy an entire Indian nation.
