Anderson, Gary C., Carnes, Mark C.

SUMMARY

For many decades, historians have chalked up the results of Little Big Horn to Colonels Custers faulty strategy of attack, and remember Sitting Bull as the lame duck leader who triumphed only because of Custers mishap. Gary Clayton Anderson, in this riveting biography, reveals a new interpretation of this crucial conflict on the high plains. At a time when the American army quite reasonably believed that the Lakota Nation was powerless and defeated, Sitting Bull was a military and spiritual leader who rallied his nation to face Custers onslaught, attracting thousands of young Indians from the reservations that spring. No other leader of the Lakota reached the stature of Sitting Bull. He remained a staunch defender of his nation and way of life until his death, at the hands of Indian police, in 1890. Preferring death to cultural suffocation on what the government called an Indian reservation, Sitting Bulls life embodied the Native resistance to the confiscation of their land and their culture.Anderson, Gary C. is the author of 'Sitting Bull And the Paradox of Lakota Nationhood ', published 2006 under ISBN 9780321421920 and ISBN 0321421922.
