Red Cloud - Warrior-Statesman of the Lakota Sioux

17.95

Perhaps no Indian leader of the mid-nineteenth century was as well known in his time as the great Lakota Sioux Red Cloud.  He led his people against the U.S. Army in the Powder River country, forced the closure of the Bozeman Trail, and strongly influenced the negotiation of a favorable outcome in the Treat of Fort Laramie in 1868: in the process became the preeminent chief among the Sioux.  In his later years, Red Cloud was an intermediary for his people in their dealings with the U.S. government and steadfastly resisted encroachments on Sioux land.
