Key Features

Description

During the winter of 1831, a boy was born into a family of Sioux. As was the custom, he was given a name that came from his actions: Slow.



Anxious to be given a name as strong and brave as that of his father, the proud Lakota Sioux grows into manhood, acting with careful deliberation, determination, and bravery, which eventually earned him his proud new name: Sitting Bull.


Dramatic text and rich paintings bring this legendary hero to life.



"...Bruchac's sensitively told history of Sitting Bull's coming of age reassures young boys that success comes through effort, not birth." - Booklist
