COMANCHE by David Appel


Email this review


The old ""claybank (a chestnut horse) tells his own story in this fictionalized account of the career of the horse who was the sole survivor of Custer's Last Stand. In speech remarkably polished for a tough cavalry mount, Comanche reminisces about his life as a wild horse, his capture by a Sioux Indian, his escape and capture by white men, his training with the U.S. Cavalry, his career with Captain Miles Keogh, the terrible Last Stand and honorable retirement. A winning animal story with a lively recounting of cowboy and Indian days.
