Among New York Times Critics’ Top Books of 2019, the top 10 Best History Books of 2019 by Smithsonian Magazine, and winner of the MPIBA reading of the West Book Award for narrative nonfiction, this is “brilliant, bold, gripping history.”  “At first glance it is every inch a sober, stately work of scholarship, — purportedly the first complete history of the Lakotas, the tribe of Sitting Bull and Crazy Horse, of the regime that long dominated the American interior, thwarting Western expansionism with charm, shrewd diplomacy and sheer might. Look again, however, and you’ll catch something roiling beneath that professional composure: a lively truculence that gives this book its pulse, and its purpose …. a quarrel with the field, with how history — especially the history of indigenous Americans — has been told and sold.” Paul Schgal, New York Times Book Review
