NEW FROM ROBERT UTLEY
“With twenty-two acclaimed books over the last fifty-eight years, Robert M. Utley has established a reputation as the Dean of Western History.”–Paul Andrew Hutton
The Last Sovereigns is the story of how Sioux chief Sitting Bull resisted the white man’s ways as a last best hope for the survival of an indigenous way of life on the Great Plains—a nomadic life based on buffalo and indigenous plants scattered across the Sioux’s historical territories that were sacred to him and his people.
Sitting Bull and his people endured hostility, tragedy, heartache, indecision, uncertainty, and starvation and responded with stubborn resistance to the loss of their freedom and way of life. In the end, starvation doomed their sovereignty. This is their story.
The historical works of Robert Utley read like well-spun novels. Don’t miss his best selling classics from our backlist–now featuring elegant new covers.
For nearly a century, Bison Books has helped sustain the intrigue of the American West by serving as the living literature of western lands and people. From fur traders to ranchers to Indigenous people to scientists, Bison Books preserves the history of the peoples and cultures that have shaped this spectacular land and generated so many stories about it.
In an effort to make these stories more widely available, the University of Nebraska Press is pleased to offer its Bison Books virtually. Now, you may tour the West from anywhere with Virtually Bison Books, an electronic portal to the e-books that preserve the West’s myths, lore, and history. Whether you’re interested in an historic trail or the lives of settlers or the wild West, the virtual tour will deliver the literary West in new and dynamic ways.
