Description

It was in Brooklyn, New York, in 1883 that William F. Cody-known across the land as Buffalo Bill-conceived of his Wild West show, an "equestrian extravaganza" featuring cowboys and Indians. It was a great success, and for four months in 1885 the Lakota chief Sitting Bull appeared in the show. Blood Brothers tells the story of these two iconic figures through their brief but important collaboration, in a compelling narrative that reads like a novel. Thoroughly researched, Deanne Stillman's account of this period in American history is elucidating as well as entertaining, complete with little-told details about the two men whose alliance was eased by none other than Annie Oakley. When Sitting Bull joined the Wild West, the event spawned one of the earliest advertising slogans: "Foes in '76, Friends in '85." Cody paid his performers well, and he treated the Indians no differently from white performers. During this time, the Native American rights movement began to flourish. But with their way of life in tatters, the Lakota and others availed themselves of the chance to perform in the Wild West show. When Cody died in 1917, a large contingent of Native Americans attended his public funeral. An iconic friendship tale like no other, Blood Brothers is a timeless story of people from different cultures who crossed barriers to engage each other as human beings. Here, Stillman provides an account of the tragic murder of Sitting Bull that's as good as any in the literature…Thoughtful and thoroughly well-told-just the right treatment for a subject about which many books have been written before, few so successfully.
