Anderson explains in his introduction that there is plenty of sentimentalization surrounding Sitting Bull, and that wasn't his goal. He wanted instead to tell a less biased account of his rise to chiefdom, and for that he accomplished his goal. It's a short and quick enough read, though not a lot of new information.

    Not a perfect book, but does the job necessary. Is a very good while being brief look at Sitting Bull. If you want in depth, find another book. If you want just the highlights, this is your book.
