This is the only book on Sitting Bull written by a lineal descendant. LaPointe, the great-grandson of the famous Hunkpapa Lakota chief, retells the family tales and memories told to him about his great-grandfather's childhood, his reputation as a fierce warrior, his growth into a leader of his people, and the betrayal that led to his murder. The details of this rich oral history often differ from what has become the widely accepted biography of Sitting Bull; LaPointe explains the discrepancies and how they occurred. He also gives insight into what it means to be a Lakota in the time of Sitting Bull and in the present day. A wealth of b&w historical photos from the family's personal collection is included, making the book of interest to general readers and scholars alike. LaPointe, a Sundancer, was born on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
