Red Cloud—the only Native American leader ever to win a war against the United States Army. Here, for the first time in print, is the story of Red Cloud’s early years as he told it to a white friend in the 1890s. This manuscript brings us closer than the historical record ever has before to understanding the life of the Lakotas’ greatest war leader until the rise of Crazy Horse.
