by Joseph Bruchac (Author)
The True Story of Sitting Bull from multi-award-winning author Joseph Bruchac.

An ALA Notable Book
"Being named Slow and growing up in the shadow of a great warrior hardly dwarfed the prospects of this protagonist: he grew up to be Sitting Bull. Bruchac's sensitively told story of Sitting Bull's coming-of-age reassures young boys that success comes through effort, not birth." —Booklist
