"In this newly revised biography, Gary C. Anderson offers a new interpretation of Sitting Bull's conflict with General George Custer at Little Big Horn, and details the events and life experiences that ultimately led Sitting Bull into battle. Incorporating the latest scholarship, Anderson profiles this military and spiritual leader of the Lakota people, a man who remained a staunch defender of his nation and way of life until his untimely death."--BOOK JACKET.
