Through riveting storytelling, readers learn how Chief Sitting Bull (1831–1890), one of the greatest Lakota-Sioux warriors, clung to his belief that the Lakota were a free people meant to live, hunt, and die on the Great Plains. He was eventually named war chief, leader of the entire Sioux nation, a title never-before bestowed, and led resistance against the US Government for more than twenty-five years. Nelson’s artwork for this biography is inspired by Lakota ledger-art drawings of the nineteenth century. For readers ages 8-12. Received Starred reviews by Booklist, Kirkus and School Library Journal.
