Few Americans realize today that there were white Americans in the 19th century who saw and decried the rapid destruction of the lives of Native Americans. In this sympathetic telling from someone who was there, Frances Holley describes the founding of the Dakotas and the resulting impact on the Sioux way of life.

Included in this volume, which Holley researched for two years in addition to her own experiences, she recounts the Battle of the Little Bighorn from the perspective of survivors with whom she communicated. Among them were Colonel Frederick Benteen, Dr. Henry Porter, and General Sturgis.

Written in 1890 as an era was ending, this unique book offers us many insights no longer available to modern residents of the United States.

For less than you'd spend on gas going to the library, this long out-of-print volume is available as an affordable, well-formatted book for e-readers and smartphones.
