Albert Marrin is a much-decorated historian and writer whose most recent book, Terror of the Spanish Main, was called "addictive reading" in The Horn Book.From School Library Journal:
Grade 6 Up-An exploration of the life and times of one of the best-known Native American leaders of the 1800s. Marrin is respectful of and sympathetic toward his subject, while presenting an evenhanded and sensitive view of the social, economic, political, and military forces at play in the "conquest of the Great Plains." His style here is similar to Russell Freedman's in The Life & Death of Crazy Horse (Holiday, 1996). A comprehensive work, the book covers Sitting Bull's brave accomplishments in his youth, his wisdom and influence as an adult, and his experiences later in life with Buffalo Bill, as well as his murder. Throughout, the author illuminates the culture of the Plains Indians with explanations and descriptions of spiritual beliefs, gender roles, and traditional chants and ceremonies. While this title is more readable than Elizabeth Schleichert's Sitting Bull (Enslow, 1997), it is also more challenging to get to the facts as the lengthy text contains so much background information and lacks a time line. However, the index is extensive, as are the chapter notes and bibliography. The volume is well illustrated with black-and-white photographs, reproductions, representations of drawings done by Sitting Bull for his pictorial autobiography, and helpful maps. This exceptionally well-documented work is an enjoyable read and a valuable resource that merits a place in all collections.
