A Boy Called Slow: The True Story of Sitting Bull

by Joseph Bruchac


Quick Overview

Anxious to be given a name as strong and brave as that of his father, a proud Lakota Sioux grows into manhood, acting with careful deliberation, determination, and bravery, which eventually earned him his proud new name--Sitting Bull.


Review Quotes: "Being named Slow and growing up in the shadow of a great warrior hardly dwarfed the prospects of this protagonist: he grew up to be Sitting Bull. Bruchac's sensitively told story of Sitting Bull's coming-of-age reassures young boys that success comes through effort, not birth." Booklist "Satisfying for its attention to historical and multicultural issues; stirring in its consummate storytelling." Publishers Weekly "The pictures evoke a sense of timelessness and distance, possessing an almost mythic quality that befits this glimpse into Horn Book" Size 0.08" H x 10.24" L x 7.8" W, 32 pages
