His father had earned the name Returns Again to Strike the Enemy, hisuncle Four Horns--good, strong names. But the boy, born many winters ago to theHunkpapa band of the Lakota Sioux, was called Slow. Slow knew that until he performed some brave or powerful deed, this was the nameby which he would be known. When he reached his seventh winter, he was one of thestrongest boys in his tribe. No one was more at ease riding a pony. And as he grew tall,his shoulders became broad and solid. Would the day ever come for him to prove hispower? Then one winter, when a group of Lakotas meet a Crow war party, Slow has thechance to earn his new name--the one you may know. With great drama and poignancy Joseph Bruchac tells the true story about thechildhood of the greatest Lakota hero--Sitting Bull. Rocco Baviera's glowing paintingsare filled with the energy and knowing of a young boy becoming a man, the energy andknowing that every young person carries on that journey from childhood to beyond.
