In 1876 three US Army Scouts leading an infantry column arrive at the scene of the Battle of Little Bighorn on the morning after General Custer's defeat. They are the first to witness the aftermath of the massacre. The mission to clear the land of Indian tribes then becomes one of revenge and the three scouts are dispatched on a journey lasting over a year, following the trail of the retreating Indians through desolate, wintry Montana. Andrew Heubner's great-great-grandfather is a family legend. In 1876 he left his family in New Jersey to join the US Army on the Western Frontier, arriving a day late for the Battle of Little Bighorn. Out of these scant details, Andrew Heubner has woven an intense and powerful novel that shatters some of the central myths of American history.

Review:

Bob Minzesheimer USA Today A haunting, evocative war novel.

Edvins Beitiks San Francisco Examiner Like a long, deep breath of fresh air...the best work of fiction to come out of the Indian Wars...a small masterpiece.

Stewart O'Nan Boston Review of Books Huebner has imagined this world brilliantly, his concrete details strong and evocative...The line writing is near flawless throughout, a triumph.

Mark Rozzo Los Angeles Times Huebner depicts the violence of the Old West -- as picturesque as it is pointless -- with unflinchingly sharp strokes.

From the Back Cover:

In the tradition of Cormac McCarthy, an unforgettable novel which recreates the violence and vitality of the American West.

In 1876, three US Army scouts leading an infantry column arrive at the scene of the Battle of Little Bighorn on the morning after General Custer's defeat. They are the first to witness the aftermath of the massacre. The mission to clear the land of Indian tribes then becomes one of revenge and the three scouts are dispatched on a journey lasting over a year, following the trail of the retreating Indians through desolate, wintry Montana.

Conveying both the extreme emotions of men in war and the awe-inspiring beauty of the landscape of the West, American by Blood is a chilling, tough and highly compelling novel, told with the intimacy of a chamber-piece, yet with the scope and resonance of an epic.

Andrew Huebner's great-great-grandfather is a family legend. In 1876 he left his family in New Jersey to join the US Army on the western frontier, arriving a day late for the Battle of Little Bighorn. Out of these scant details, Andrew Huebner has woven and intense and powerful novel that shatters some of the central myths of American history.
