This stunning account of the battle of the Little Bighorn recreates June 25, 1876 as it happened through the voices of the native American survivors. And although the victory was through their own fearlessness and sheer number of soldiers, what the victors won that day didn''t help them in the end. By the end of the century, Sitting Bull and Crazy Horse were both gone as well as the traditional way of life. In the words of Sitting Bull: I am a red man. If the Great Spirit had desired me to be a white man, he would have made me so in the first place. It is not necessary for eagles to be crows. Now we are poor, but we are free.
