I already knew several interesting facts about Sitting Bull. EX: Tje Colonel and Little Missy was intriguing and it recorded many of the side note tidbits. But that book focused more on Buffalo Bill.
Charles Rivers Editors did a terrific job with this book by explains the more significant points on Totanka Yotanka. And let's us see Sitting Bull's befriending beggars and the poor. But, welcome as that insight was, and as interesting as was his youthful bravery, the single most interesting trivia was the Sioux's likely true meaning of their description of the white man --- instead of white man, they likely thought of the invaders as stealers of the fat of the land.
In closing, if you was a super fast nonfiction biography of a great, kindly leader of the Sioux-speaking Native Americans, I highly recommend this book, as well as Charles Rivers Editors books on history and culture of the Sioux; Battle of the Little Bighorn.
The book is a quick read, but it left me wanting more depth of information. Still, what was presented was useful and I encountered a few details I had not known before.
Overall, it is worthwhile reading, but one needs a more comprehensive biography of Sitting Bull for a more complete understanding.
The photograph of Sitting Bull is commonly seen and I was drawn by the photograph and book cover to find out more about this man impressive man, so unfairly treated as in the case of our own indigenous people given so little respect or acknowledgement of their skills, customs, family life , relationships and especially traditional medicine.
I enjoyed reading the book, am looking forward to reading and learning more in the future
