Abstract:

By the 1890s, only a few pockets of resistance still held out against the American push to conquer the West.

On the Great Plains, Sitting Bull followed his mystical visions and urged his Lakota people to fight rather than surrender their sacred Black Hills and traditional way of life. On a hot summer day at the Little Bighorn, they would defeat another warrior equally sure of his own invincibility: George Armstrong Custoer. But Custer's "Last Stand" would become, in effect, the last stand of the Sioux as a free people.

In Utah, the Mormon patriarch Brigham Young, who had led his people to sanctuary in the desert, would be forced to choose between saving his church or sacrificing his spiritual son.

Farther west, Chief Joseph of the Nez Perce, who had struggled all his life for peace, would find himself helping to lead one of the most estraordinary military campaigns in American history, as army after army relentlessly pursued him across the West. In the end, he would be defeated not by rifles and cannon, but by starvation and freezing cold. But this remarkable, eloquent man would also become the symbol of the pride and dignity - and plight - of all Native Americans.
