Summary, etc.: Jeffrey Ostler explores the deep relationship between a people and their land, and chronicles their struggle to preserve it in the face of overwhelming odds. The arrival of white settlers to the Hills brought the Lakotas into inexorable conflict with the changing world, at a time when their tribe would produce some of the most famous and important Native Americans in history, including Red Cloud, Sitting Bull, and the legendary Crazy Horse.
