Centered on Red Cloud's career, this is an admirably impartial, circumstantial, and rigorously documented study of the relations between the Sioux and the United States government during the years. Chief Red Cloud () was a great leader who fiercely defended the lands and rights of the Oglala Lakota.

The text describes Red Cloud's encounters with the white men while defending the Sioux hunting grounds in South Dakota and Nebraska. That Red Cloud fought only with words and never with weapons after he signed the treaty of is also.
