It is most unlikely in one quantity to relate even the manager occasions within the crowded lifetime of so many-sided a guy, and whilst record intimately the innumerable statements which run counter to a legend nearly completely fake. it really is inevitable, hence, that this type of compressed narrative should still now and then seem to be a piece of mere mind's eye. I guarantee the reader that such an influence is unwarranted. The occasions of this tale are actual occasions. 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.
