In the Footsteps of Little Crow [NOOK Book]

Overview

At the Star Tribune, as we approached the 150th anniversary of the U.S.-Dakota War, we decided to try to explain the significance of this awful time with a historical narrative, as told through the story of Little Crow, a Dakota chief who, at times reluctantly, led the 1862 rebellion. This e-book may read like a work of historical fiction, but it is a deeply reported piece of journalism, down to the smallest of details.

    Great history

    Loved this book. My grandmother 's grandmother was warned by a friendly indian and hid her baby in a butter churn . Then she harnessed her horses to a wagon and raced to safety in Mankato with her baby. That is why I am here today!

    Well researched and well written. Wish the maps were larger; they are impossible to see at the current size and I couldn't enlarge them on my Nook as I can with some other graphics. The original series ran in the Star Tribune newspaper, and there were also lots of other wonderful historical photos, which I wish were included.

    This is a fascinating narrative of an event in Minnesota history

    This is a fascinating narrative of an event in Minnesota history that
    should never be forgotten. I am ashamed of the behavior of some of our
    Minnesota forefathers who have been held in high enough esteem to have
    streets and parks named after them. Mr. Brown brings the characters to
    life and fleshes out the story based on much research. I appreciate the
    report on how it still affects the ancestors of the people involved and
    hope it will bring about reconciliation.

    Wonderful Book

    This was a very interesting read, and at the same time very disturbing. No wonder the indians hate the white man.

    Our Native American History

    This is a short and poignant review of the life of Little Crow and the Dakota nation. It is also a sad commentary on our history of broken treaties.

    Very good

    As a resident of both of the areas Little Crow lived in I found it interesting. The history has not been told from the native perspective and is long overdue.
