Praise For…

"The story, at once inspiring and sad, is expanded and enriched by Nelson’s beautiful ink, watercolor, and colored-pencil illustrations executed in the nineteenth-century Lakota ledger-book style...The result is an excellent volume for both independent reading and classroom use."

— Booklist

"An impressive amount of information movingly and handsomely conveyed."

— Kirkus

"Nelson, author of numerous award-winning books...has once again carefully researched, documented, and crafted a nuanced and valuable work of history.... Readers will appreciate this complex look at Chief Red Cloud."

— School Library Journal

"This book's vibrant art is inspired by historical Plains ledger art; the sketches, colored pencil and bright watercolor washes, stand out against the ledger lines...One of the strongest elements of the book is its focus on treaties as symbols of nation-to-nation relationships."

— The Horn Book
