Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Aller has written an interesting biography of Sitting Bull, the spiritual leader and warrior of the Lakota people. Sitting Bull, born in the early 1800s and given the name of Hunkesni, meaning "Slow" because he took his time, grew up in the Dakota Territory during a time of unrest and battles with the United States Government. The Lakotas depended on the buffalo for everything; food, clothing, weapons. When white people settled on their land, they began to kill the buffalo and demanded more and more land. Hunkesni went out with the Lakota warriors to protect his land. He was a brave warrior and earned a new name, Tatanka Iyotake or Sitting Bull. One of the Lakotas biggest battles was with General Custer at the Battle of the Little Bighorn. Custer and his soldiers were defeated. Sitting Bull wanted a peaceful solution, but he was forced to flee to Canada where he lived for several years. Eventually, Sitting Bull returned to the United States and turned himself in to the Army. He was then sent to a reservation where he remained a leader among his people. He is remembered for his bravery and struggle to protect his people and their land. Black and white and color photographs and drawings accompany the text. A timeline, further reading, websites, and bibliography are also included. 2004, Lerner Publications Company, Ages 8 to 12.

School Library Journal
Gr 3-5-These factual and ultimately sad chronicles of four men reveal the life stories of valiant, ingenious chiefs of Native American tribes in the final half of the 19th century. All four biographies follow the same easy format. A brief, single-page introduction precedes five chapters that introduce the life of the man, his people, and his victories and tragic losses. With the exception of Native American names and language, the reading is easy and significantly enhanced by period photographs, maps, paintings, and full-color cartoon illustrations. Highlighted insets provide additional information. All four of the books tell an unremitting story of perfidy, betrayal, broken promises and treaties, and genocide. What comes across in each presentation is the great courage of these chiefs. Although men such as Geronimo and Sitting Bull (who was treacherously murdered while under U.S. government protection) did kill in battle, they did so to defend what they had been taught from birth was their homeland. The books serve as excellent research models for young scholars creating their own biography reports. The authors demonstrate how to unveil a life in chronological fashion and how to accentuate the most dramatic aspects of a person's history.-Jerry D. Flack, University of Colorado, Colorado Springs Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
