AGES 6-10: Musing about the triumphs and tragedies of life gone by is a natural part of aging.

In this beautifully realized book, author Ann Turner creates that kind of remembrance for the famed Hunkpapa Sioux leader, Sitting Bull. As the aged warrior sits in his cell, he remembers his valiant youth, the foolishness of “Long Hair” Custer and the treacheries of the soldiers that caused the loss of his way of life. The memoir is accompanied by exquisite artwork created by illustrator Wendell Minor. Sitting Bull Remembers is an excellent book, especially for 8-10 year olds who want to learn more about a vanished way of life. It is also aesthetic enough to be a coffee table book for any adult interested in Western lore.
