"Ernie LaPointe has done an excellent job telling the story of his great-grandfather. The story clearly comes from his heart and presents a point of view that has been missing from the literature up to this point. He presents his grandfather as Sitting Bull would have wanted to be remembered - a sundancer and a man who wished to live in peace and equality with his fellow men on Mother Earth"
