My People the Sioux
When it was first published in 1928, Luther Standing Bear's autobiographical account of his tribe and tribesmen was hailed by Van Wyck Brooks as ?one of the most engaging and veracious we have ever had.? It remains a landmark in Indian literature, among the first books about Indians written from the Indian point of view by an Indian.
Born in the 1860s, the son of a Lakota chief, Standing Bear was in the first class at Carlisle Indian School, witnessed the Ghost Dance uprising from the Pine Ridge Reservation, toured Europe with Buffalo Bill's Wild West show, and devoted his later years to the Indian rights movement of the 1920s and 1930s.

I very much liked reading this book. The book is an autobiography of Standing Bear's life. Standing Bear recounts his life all the way from the cradle up to adulthood. I recommend anyone to read this book if they are interested in Native American History. Read full review
