Custer quietly celebrates the dedication of men and women who act above and beyond their capabilities during war and upheaval. Although these stories were written over a span of three decades, their themes of generational conflict, hypocrisy, loss, sacrifice, love, and war remain fresh and startling. Alternately funny and uncomfortable, Swarthout captures the postwar tensions of twentieth-century Americans. This collection reveals the versatility, range, and skill of one of Americas great storytellers.

Easterns and Westerns includes one unpublished novella and thirteen stories, some of which have appeared in national magazines such as Esquire, Cosmopolitan, Redbook, and the Saturday Evening Post. One of these, A Glass of Blessings, was an OHenry Prize Short Story in 1960. Another, A Horse for Mrs. Custer, became a 1956 Western film for Columbia Pictures- 7th Cavalry, starring Randolph Scott and Barbara Hale. A third story, Mulligans, has been made into a short comedy film.
