We know the names of Sitting Bull and Crazy Horse, but less is commonly known of Gall. A brilliant Hunkpapa warrior, Gall was Chief Sitting Bull's most able lieutenant. Paperback Native American history book
Measures: 6.14 x 0.78 x 9.21 inches
Called the “Fighting Cock of the Sioux” by U.S. soldiers, Hunkpapa warrior Gall was a great Lakota chief who, along with Sitting Bull and Crazy Horse, resisted efforts by the U.S. government to annex the Black Hills. It was Gall, enraged by the slaughter of his family, who led the charge across Medicine Tail Ford to attack Custer’s main forces on the other side of the Little Bighorn.
Robert W. Larson now sorts through contrasting views of Gall, to determine the real character of this legendary Sioux. This first-ever scholarly biography also focuses on the actions Gall took during his final years on the reservation, unraveling his last fourteen years to better understand his previous forty.
