Red Cloud: A Lakota Story of War and Surrender
by S. D. Nelson Author
Red Cloud (1822–1909) was a great warrior and chief of the Lakota. This illustrated children's book is told from his perspective, describing the events that brought him to prominence as a leader of his people and how he came to surrender them to the wasichus (White Man), ending their way of life on the Great Plains. Red Cloud explains how the Lakota became the only nation to win a war against the U.S. Army on American soil. However, unlike fellow warriors Crazy Horse and Sitting Bull, Red Cloud eventually submitted to change and moved his followers onto a reservation. The story concludes with Red Cloud’s trip to the East Coast, where he visited New York City and met President Ulysses S. Grant.
