Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Anxious to be given a name as strong and brave as that of his father, a proud Lakota Sioux grows into manhood, acting with careful deliberation, determination, and bravery, which eventually earned him his proud new name: Sitting Bull. ?Being named Slow and growing up in the shadow of a great warrior hardly dwarfed the prospects of this protagonist?Bruchac?s sensitively told history of Sitting Bull?s coming-of-age reassures young boys that success comes through effort, not birth.? --Booklist ?Satisfying for its attention to historical and multicultural issues; stirring in its consummate storytelling.? --Publishers Weekly ?The pictures evoke a sense of timelessness and distance, possessing an almost mythic quality that befits this glimpse into history.? --Horn Book

Synopsis:

Anxious to be given a name as strong and brave as that of his father, a proud Lakota Sioux grows into manhood, acting with careful deliberation, determination, and bravery, which eventually earned him his proud new name--Sitting Bull.
