Sitting Bull - A Life and Times of an American Patriot by Robert M. Utley. (Henry Holt and Company, 413 pp, paperback)

The definitive book about the legendary chief and his dramatic role in the history of westward expansion. Reviled by the United States government as a troublemaker and a coward, revered by his people as a great warrior chief, Sitting Bull has long been one of the most fascinating and misunderstood figures in American history. In this authoritative book, historian Robert Utley has forged a compelling portrait of Sitting Bull. By presenting the Lakota perspective for the first time, he has rendered the most historically accurate and vivid biography of the man to date. The Sitting Bull who emerges in this fast-paced narrative is a complex, towering figure; a great warrior whose skill and bravery in battle were unparalleled, the spiritual leader of his people, and a dignified but ultimately tragically stubborn defender of the traditional ways against the steadfast and unwelcome encroachment of the white man.
