Edward J. Rielly
An accessible biography of the great Sioux leader
A revered political, spiritual, and military leader, Sitting Bull was legendary for his stubbornness and battle prowess as head of the Lakota Sioux in the 1860s. His resistance of U.S. government encroachment onto Native lands and his fight to preserve Sioux culture inspired his people to do the same, culminating in the Battle of Little Bighorn. Despite his eventual surrender, Sitting Bull was one of the most influential figures in the history of U.S.-Native American relations. This accessible biography marks the first of several Native American volumes to come in the Greenwood Biographies series and is an essential supplement to any American history or Native American studies curricula.
Lively, narrative chapters explore:
• Sitting Bull's early years and successes as a young warrior
• The Battle of Little Bighorn and Sitting Bull's eventual flight to Canada
• His confinement to a reservation and participation in Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show
• His legacy, historical reputation, and images in popular culture.
