Synopsis

Red Cloud's War Brave Eagle's Account of the Fetterman Fight by Paul Goble, Robert Lewis

We are brave and ready to fight for our lands...I will go now and I will fight you. As long as I live, I will fight you for the last hunting grounds of my people, said Red Cloud, war chief of the Oglala Lakota, to Colonel Carrington. The year was 1866, the Civil War had just ended, and the Bozeman Trail was the shortest route for prospectors to reach the gold rush territory of Montana-except that it passed straight through the lands of the powerful Oglala Lakota! When the US government demanded the construction of forts along the trail, the situation quickly dissolved into war. Captain William Fetterman had proudly boasted that he could destroy the entire Lakota nation with just 80 men. Red Cloud, with the support of Crazy Horse and Sitting Bull, had other ideas. In this commemorative edition, marking the 150th anniversary of Red Cloud's War, Goble recounts the tale of events through the eyes of Brave Eagle, a fictional young Lakota warrior. This new edition features an original never-before-published layout, updated and edited text, digitally enhanced artwork, and a new foreword by Robert Lewis, a Cherokee, Navaho, and Apache storyteller.

Reviews

The figures of Indians and ponies, cavalry men and foot soldiers are complete in minute detail. Goble is inspired by the work of George Catlin. Catlin would be proud to know that he had such a talented disciple... It is a good book to grow into. New York Times
