Question Gambastiani series-Title?

A writer named Kurt(?) Gambastiani wrote an AH series in which Custer is President of the US and his son is with the Plains Indians. There is a VERY interesting map in the first book which shows a QUITE different US. It has an inland sea eliminating some and possibly all of a few states. I'll try and get the title(s) asap.Anyone read them?

"Fallen Cloud Saga"

I think its very interesting and highly original. The indian's riding the dinosaurs and the politics of Custer's Washington keeps my interest. I would love to see a TL for the series.

I Did. THAT's my Favorite site. I went to a SF Con Friday in Baltimore and checked out the books. I DID not find any time line-but that was looking at the LATEST book. I'll check. Thanks.

I did take a look about the web and discovered that Giambastiani has planned a fifth book, but some disagreement with Roc may keep it from getting printed. Take a look at:

http://www.sff.net/people/giambastiani/

for some information about the Fallen Cloud Saga and Giambastiani's take on doing alternate history.
