Robert M. Utley

Robert Marshall Utley is an author and historian who has written sixteen books on the history of the American West, including "The Lance and the Shield: The Life of Sitting Bull". He was a former chief historian of the National Park Service. Fellow historians commend Utley as the finest historian of the American frontier in the 19th century.

The Western History Association annually gives out the Robert M. Utley Book Award for the best book published on the military history of the frontier and western North America (including Mexico and Canada) from prehistory through the twentieth century.

Utley lives in Georgetown, Texas, with his wife Melody Webb, also a historian.
