The white men called it the 'Battle of the Rosebud'. The Cheyenne called it 'Where the Girl Saved Her Brother'. Buffalo Calf Road Woman rode through the dust and weapons of warfare to save her brother as he fell from his horse, earning her the respect of her tribe. Later, she would be the only woman to fight in the Battle of Little Big Horn, and she spent the majority of her life resisting the internment of Native Americans in reservations.
Culled together from oral histories, scarce historial mentions and drawings, the authors have fleshed out her story with knowledge of how other Cheyenne lived. Combining factual research from the best museums, archaeologial data and documents with what's known of Buffalo Calf's life, creates a unique, fictionalized but accurate portrait of a forgotten life. 242 pages, softcover. Glossary, Discussion questions, and timeline included in the back.
