The Life of Red Cloud
Red Cloud distinguished himself early on as a brave and skilled warrior. In his youth, he joined his people, the Oglala Sioux, in fighting nearby Crow and Pawnee groups. When the United States government created the Bozeman Trail — a shortcut to the Oregon Trail that led directly through Sioux hunting grounds — Red Cloud embarked on a prolonged campaign against the government. He is the only Native American in history to win a war against the US Army. The engaging main text, enhanced by historical black-and-white photographs, gives young students a glimpse into this extraordinary hero's life.
