A painter and a teller of stories

Red Cloud: A Lakota Story of War and Surrender

by S.D. Nelson

In this illuminating picture book Nelson reinterprets nineteenth century Lakota ledger-art to give authenticity to the story of Red Cloud (1822–1909), one of the most controversial members of the Lakota tribe.  Told from Red Cloud’s perspective, the book details historic events that brought him to prominence as a leader of his people and how he came to surrender them to the wasichus (the White Man), ending their way of life on the Great Plains. For readers ages 8-12. Received Starred reviews by Kirkus and School Library Journal.
