Summary
A portrait of the proud young Lakota Sioux who eventually grew up to become Sitting Bull describes his determination to be strong and brave like his father and his careful, deliberate manners that earned him his adult name. Reprint. AB. PW. H.
Amazon.com description: Product Description: The True Story of Sitting Bull from multi-award-winning author Joseph Bruchac.

Anxious to be given a name as strong and brave as that of his father, a proud Lakota Sioux grows into manhood, acting with careful deliberation, determination, and bravery, which eventually earned him his proud new name: Sitting Bull.

An ALA Notable Book

"Being named Slow and growing up in the shadow of a great warrior hardly dwarfed the prospects of this protagonist: he grew up to be Sitting Bull. Bruchac's sensitively told story of Sitting Bull's coming-of-age reassures young boys that success comes through effort, not birth." —Booklist
