Lakota America: A New History of Indigenous Power
Pekka Hamalainen (Author)
DescriptionThis first complete account of the Lakota Indians traces their rich and often surprising history from the early sixteenth to the early twenty-first century. The book explores the Lakotas' roots as marginal hunter-gatherers and reveals how they reinvented themselves as a horse people and launched America's first sweeping westward expansion.
