The scenes described—many of which i've got visited—are genuine scenes. i've got invented no discussion; the phrases positioned into the mouth of Sitting Bull are his personal, and for plenty of of his utterances i've got the Sioux textual content. The man’s psychology, the place indicated, is that prompt by means of Indians who knew him, no longer alone. and i've scrupulously attempted to mark off in actual fact all concerns of opinion or inference from issues of truth. the place legend intrudes, it really is labelled.
