I have a great interest in Native American history and literature. This is the most powerful Native American account I've read to date.

I've visited the area where this story takes place, and this book gives me a sense of it's history. It's heartbreaking story it one that every American should be familiar with.

Witness at Little Bighorn when G.A. Custer met the Sioux and Cheyenne on his fateful day. Many other stories of his life.
