Day the World Ended at Little Bighorn: A Lakota History based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Joseph Marshall's The Day the World Ended at Little Bighorn takes the reader from the actual battle to the present, not over-elaborating on military tactics or strategies, or prior encounters. Instead, he brings into consideration the challenges Sitting Bull and others faced in bringing together so many Cheyenne and Lakota warriors for the actual battle, the subsequent American reaction after the battle, the U.S. government's policies and acts to appease, subdue and control the Lakota, and most importantly, the Lakota struggle not only to physically survive, but to maintain an identity and rich culture while striving to live in today's world. His story is told with feeling and knowledge and not fueled by bitterness. A recommended read, especially for the young or uninformed.
