The whole town of Lander has turned out for the big parade celebrating the start of the new rodeo season in “Killing Custer,” the newest Wind River mystery by Margaret Coel. The main spectacle is the appearance of Colonel Edward Garrett – a spot-on-impersonator of General George Custer – and a troop of men acting as the fated Seventh Calvary. A group of Arapaho Warriors from the Wind River Reservation encircle Garret and his men in a “dare ride” just to remind them exactly who won the Battle of the Little Big Horn. When the ride is over, history seems to have repeated itself. Garret is dead in the street and public sentiment turns against the Arapaho.
