A concise and engrossing account of the Lakota and the battle to regain their homeland.



The Lakota Indians made their home in the majestic Black Hills mountain range during the last millennium, drawing on the hills’ endless bounty for physical and spiritual sustenance. Yet the arrival of white settlers brought the Lakotas into inexorable conflict with the changing world, at a time when their tribe would produce some of the most famous Native Americans in history, including Red Cloud, Sitting Bull, and Crazy Horse. Jeffrey Ostler’s powerful history of the Lakotas’ struggle captures the heart of a people whose deep relationship with their homeland would compel them to fight for it against overwhelming odds, on battlefields as varied as the Little Bighorn and the chambers of U.S. Supreme Court.



Jeffrey Ostler is the Beekman Professor of Northwest and Pacific History at the University of Oregon. He is a specialist in the history of the American West, with a heavy focus on the history of American Indians. Ostler is the author of The Lakotas and the Black Hills: The Struggle for Sacred Ground, The Plains Sioux and U.S. Colonialism from Lewis and Clark to Wounded Knee, Prairie Populism: The Fate of Agrarian Radicalism in Kansas, Nebraska, and Iowa, and more.
