Georgia, 1898: On what may be the last day of his life, Captain Frederick Benteen the man who, in the minds of many Americans, might have saved Custer's Seventh Cavalry from death at Little Bighorn receives a letter from an ambitious boy offering to "restore" his reputation. In the years since, Benteen has silently watched as the public canonized Custer for dying and cursed Benteen for surviving.

"Sydney has always been the sexiest and most gaudy of our cities. In this book, the third in a series in which leading Australian authors write about their hometowns, novelist Delia Falconer conjures up its sandstone, humidity, and jacarandas. But she goes beyond these to find a far more complex city: beautiful, violent, half-wild, and at times deeply spiritual. It is a slightly unreal place, haunted by a past that it has never quite grasped, or come to terms with. Here, in her first non-fiction book, she proves herself an adept memoirist. She twines the stories of the people that have made Sydney the twenty-first century city it is today. Mad clergymen, amateur astronomers, Indigenous weather experts, crims and victims, photographers and artists: their stories are surprising, funny, and moving."--Publisher's description
