The first-hand recounts of the Little Bighorn battle were fascinating; White Bull's narrative of the fight from a Sioux/Cheyenne perspective added small details I had not know before now. For instance White Bull was fighting along side Crazy Horse and he asked him if he was going to lead a small charge into on of the enemy positions. When Crazy Horse said no, White Bull replied "Then I will!" and took off on his pony at a callop.
I enjoyed the book, but the narrator got in the way too frequently. I prefer verbatim memoirs like those of Yellow Wolf, Two Leggings, and Plenty Coups.
Whitebull- my online ego- comes from this book....
