About the Author

David Heska Wanbli Weiden lives in Denver, Colorado, and is the father of two amazing sons, David and Sasha. He's a citizen of the Sicangu Lakota nation and teaches Native American Studies classes at Metropolitan State University of Denver. His spirit name, Heska Wanbli, means "mountain eagle." He writes books for children and for adults, and reading is his favorite thing in the world, except for spending time with his kids.
Jim Yellowhawk is a contemporary Lakota multimedia artist. He lives in Rapid City, South Dakota.
Pat Kinsella is a Brooklyn-based illustrator with a B.F.A. in printmaking from the Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia, and an M.F.A. in illustration from the School of Visual Arts in NYC.


"A real strength of the book is the way Weiden connects certain aspects of Spotted Tail's life with ongoing issues for Native people -- such as the Lakota people's efforts to keep/recover the Black Hills." -- Dr Debbie Reese/Posted by Jean Mendoza "AICL (American Indians in Children's Literature)"
"Throughout this detailed biography of Spotted Tail (1823-1881), debut author Weiden links conflicts from the Lakota warrior and mediator's time to the present day. Mixed-media artwork combines crisp photographs of Native land with art by Yellowhawk, including portraits and battle scenes done in the style of earlier Native art.." -- PW (Publisher's Weekly) "PW (Publisher's Weekly)"
