Summary

A prominent Lakota Sioux chief and medicine man, Sitting Bull was both a man of peace and a man of war as he sought to simultaneously fight and negotiate on behalf of his people during the westward expansion of the United States. His visions inspired and led the Native American warriors to victory in the legendary Battle of the Little Bighorn in 1876. This triumph would, however, be short-lived, and Sitting Bull and his loyal band of followers would be forced to surrender their freedom only five years later.

Sitting Bull led the Sioux Nation through some of their most turbulent times as they faced the loss of their ancestral lands and were forced to move to reservations - reservations that steadily decreased in size according to the whims of the US government and the discovery of new gold deposits. His death on the Standing Rock Reservation at the hands of Indian agents in 1890 would help to spark one final uprising on the part of the Lakota Sioux, one that would culminate in the tragic massacre at Wounded Knee. Sitting Bull was one of the most important figures in the history of the Native Americans and their struggle against the government of the United States. This book reveals his incredible life and legacy in full.
