Product Description

The white men called it the "Battle of the Rosebud". The Cheyenne called it "Where the Girl Saved Her Brother". Buffalo Calf Road Woman rode through the dust and weapons of warfare to save her brother as he fell from his horse, earning her the respect of her tribe. Later, she would be the only woman to fight in the Battle of Little Big Horn, and she spent the majority of her life resisting the internment of Native Americans in reservations.

Culled together from oral histories, scarce historial mentions and drawings, the authors have fleshed out her story with knowledge of how other Cheyenne lived. Combining factual research from the best museums, archaeologial data and documents with what's known of Buffalo Calf's life, creates a unique, fictionalized but accurate portrait of a forgotten life. 242 pages, softcover. Glossary, Discussion questions, and timeline included in the back.

Publisher's Description

Winner of the Western Heritage Award for "Outstanding Western Novel" 2005
 
As the Cheyenne fought that June day in 1876, warrior Comes in Sight faced grave danger. His horse had been shot out from under him, and he was left stranded on the battlefield. Suddenly, a rider galloped through enemy fire, pulled Comes in Sight onto the back of her horse, and spirited him to safety. It was Buffalo Calf Road Woman—the warrior’s own sister.

While white men refer to this clash as the Battle of the Rosebud, the Cheyenne know it as the battle, “Where the Girl Saved Her Brother.” Days later, Buffalo Calf fought at the Battle of Little Bighorn—the only woman to do so. And now a controversy is brewing over her role in that battle: Did Buffalo Calf strike the fatal blow that killed Custer?

In this award-winning novel, authors Rosemary Agonito and Joseph Agonito depict the life and times of this brave young woman and the devastating effects of white man’s westward migration. Based on true events, this epic tale of love and war is an inspiring journey through one of history’s most moving sagas.
