I wish it to be remembered that I was the last man of my tribe to surrender my rifle.” Sitting Bull lived and died for his people, the Sioux of the Great Plains. Renowned author George Edward Stanley traces Sitting Bull's lifelong fight for justice and struggle to retain his tribe's ancestral lands, as well as the battle at Little Bighorn and the terrible massacre at Wounded Knee that occurred in the wake of his death.

George Edward Stanley is a Professor of African and Middle Eastern Languages and Linguistics at Cameron University in Lawton, Oklahoma where he lives. Stanley has 100 books to his credit, some of which have been critically acclaimed.From School Library Journal:
Gr 5-8–These volumes are beautifully arranged with thick glossy pages, clear type, period photographs, enchanting portraits, lithographs, woodcuts, color maps, and a few relevant modern photographs of existing natural wonders. Each biography weaves the life and struggle of the featured Native American leader with the white man's “manifest destiny” to settle the New World and includes an evolutionary explanation of the term “American Indian.” The accounts are rich with exhaustive details, especially of skirmishes, treaties, and battles. The heroes' stories are accented with other players' mini biographies and side stories on topics such as militia and modern reservation casinos. A few enduring expressions and quotes are explained, such as “counting coup,” “GERONIMO!” and “A good Indian is a dead Indian.” The point of view alternates between the subject and his various allies and adversaries. Conflicting historical accounts are analyzed responsibly. These biographies, particularly Tecumseh, could lead to research on politics, diplomacy, human rights, peace, or conflict resolution.–S.
