Obtaining an honorable discharge from the U.S. Army, he sets off to marry his sweetheart-only to discover that while he committed himself to his country, his intended committed herself to another…With nowhere else to turn, Quinn re-enlists as a civilian member of the Trains Company, responsible for the delivery of military supplies to units in the Dakota Territory.

Fictionalized version of the events culminating in the Battle at the Little Bighorn. Pretty good outlining of the major events. Custer is presented in a less than flattering light.

One of the more interesting portions of the book has to do with the evacuation of the wounded survivors from the Reno and Benteen groups, via the steamboat 'Far West', which had delivered some materiel to the Seventh prior to their embarkation on the campaign. Navigating further up the Yellowstone River than any commercial craft had ever gone, the 'Far West' traversed shallow water, shifting sandbars, islands, rapids, and tight quarters to get the wounded back to Fort Bismark.
