Summary "Sitting Bull is best known for his part in the Battle of the Little Bighorn. He continually resisted the US government's mandate that all Native Americans must move to reservations they set up. Sitting Bull became an important leader to his people, the Lakota, and a symbol to others who wished to resist the US laws as well. With an emphasis on the Native American experience, this volume introduces readers to Sitting Bull and his cause. Important events are enhanced by historical images and collected in a timeline to aid understanding of a trying time in US history"--Provided by the publisher.
