Richly researched, illustrated with photographs and drawings, contrasting and weaving white and Native American viewpoints, this is a full-length biography of the man who was, arguably, the Plains Indians’ most revered, most visionary, leader — the Hunkpapa Lakota holy man who defeated Custer at the Battle of Little Big Horn, who in the face of the army, the railroad, the discovery of gold, and the decimation of the buffalo — took his band to Canada rather than forsake his heritage and his freedom and come in to a white man’s reservation.
