Synopsis: Stories from the Great Sioux Reservation from 1850 to 1910.
Stories are related to the decade and a half in which the last of millions of buffalo and thousands of Lakota Sioux would be replaced by thirty to sixty thousand trespassing cattle which would be rounded up to be replaced by over a hundred thousand hopeful homestead applicants.
