Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In Their Own Words: Sitting Bull tells the exciting story of Sitting Bull's life using real drawings, letters, and speeches from him and from his friends and family.

A warrior I have been. / Now, it is all over. / A hard time I have.

With these words, Sitting Bull surrendered to the U.S. government on July 20, 1881. Sitting Bull spent most of his life trying to protect his people. A proud father and brave warrior, Sitting Bull wanted the Lakota Sioux to continue hunting buffalo and roaming the Plains. Although he lost this battle, Sitting Bull is remembered for his brave actions and notable accomplishments.

In this new biography of Sitting Bull, kids will marvel at the man who lived a life full of adventure and who was noted for his courage.
