He was the only Native American chief to defeat the United States Army in a war. A renowned and respected leader in the vicious, bloody clashes for control over land in the Great Plains of the American West, his name came to represent the conflict itself: Red Cloud's War. The fog of history has left Red Cloud strangely obscured, despite his staggering achievements. He was born in 1821 and advanced in Sioux culture as a warrior and leader through fearless raids against neighboring tribes, preparing him for the epic struggle his nation would face with an expanding United States. This is a story as big as the West, including portraits of General William Tecumseh Sherman, explorer John Bozeman, mountain man Jim Bridger, Red Cloud protégé Crazy Horse, and many others. It is a story about the birth of America as we know it today. Drawing on a wealth of evidence that includes Red Cloud's 134-page autobiography, lost for nearly a hundred years, award-winning authors Bob Drury and Tom Clavin bring their subject to life again in a gripping narrative that places you at the center of the conflict over western expansion. Red Cloud finally gives the nation's greatest war leader and Native American legend the modern-day recognition he deserves.

Henry p kaha ia (ca. 1792–1818), Native Hawaiian, and Itankusun Wanbli (ca. 1879–1900), Oglala Lakota, lived almost a century apart. Yet the cultural circumstances that led them to leave their homelands and eventually die in Connecticut have striking similarities. p kaha ia was orphaned during the turmoil caused in part by Kamehameha’s wars in Hawai’i and found passage on a ship to New England, where he was introduced and converted to Christianity, becoming the inspiration behind the first Christian missions to Hawai’i. Itankusun Wanbli, Christianized as Albert Afraid of Hawk, performed in Buffalo Bill’s “Wild West” as a way to make a living after his traditional means of sustenance were impacted by American expansionism. Both young men died while on their “journeys” to find fulfillment and both were buried in Connecticut cemeteries. In 1992 and 2008, descendant women had callings that their ancestors “wanted to come home” and began the repatriation process of their physical remains. CT state archaeologist Nick Bellantoni oversaw the archaeological disinterment, forensic identifications and return of their skeletal remains back to their Native communities and families. The Long Journeys Home chronicles these important stories as examples of the wide-reaching impact of American imperialism and colonialism on Indigenous Hawaiian and Lakota traditions and their cultural resurgences, in which the repatriation of these young men have played significant roles. Bellantoni’s excavations, his interaction with two Native families and his participation in their repatriations have given him unique insights into the importance of heritage and family among contemporary Native communities and their common ground with archaeologists. His natural storytelling abilities allow him to share these meaningful stories with a larger general audience.

The award-winning author and illustrator of Black Elk’s Vision and Sitting Bull continues his picture-book biography series with Red Cloud, the story of one of the most controversial leaders in Native American history. A leader among the Lakota during the 1860s, Chief Red Cloud deeply opposed white expansion into Native American territory. He rejected treaties from the U.S. government and instead united the warriors of the Lakota and nearby tribes, becoming the only Native American to win a war against the U.S. Army. Despite his military successes, Red Cloud recognized that continued conflict would only bring destruction to his people. He made the controversial decision to make an agreement with the U.S. government, and moved his people to a reservation. The effects of his decision—as well as the conflicts that arose from those who rejected the agreement and continued fighting against white expansion, such as Crazy Horse and Sitting Bull—shaped much of the history of Native American relations with the U.S. in years to come. Featuring archival images and S. D. Nelson’s stunning illustrations, Red Cloud offers an authentic Native American perspective on one of the most pivotal eras of American history. S. D. Nelson has received praise and honor for his works. His book Sitting Bull received an American Indian Youth Literature Honor Award. Black Elk’s Vision made the prestigious Texas Bluebonnet Master List and The Star People earned a Western Spur award.

Ein altes Hotel, ein Schneesturm und ein Wochenende voller unerwarteter Begegnungen Jedes Jahr im November findet in dem alten, einst prachtvollen Bellweather Hotel ein landesweiter Musikwettbewerb statt. Hunderte von Nachwuchstalenten strömen durch die Flure, darunter auch der schüchterne Rabbit Hatmaker und seine divenhafte Zwillingsschwester Alice, die bereits jetzt an ihren Memoiren schreibt. Auch Minnie Graves ist nach fünfzehn Jahren zum ersten Mal ins Bellweather zurückgekehrt. Damals, als kleines Mädchen, wurde sie Zeugin einer schrecklichen Tragödie, die sich in Zimmer 712 ereignete. Als die Hotelgäste von einem gewaltigen Schneesturm überrascht werden und eine begnadete Flötistin verschwindet – ausgerechnet aus Zimmer 712 –, treffen bei der Suche Personen aufeinander, die mehr miteinander gemeinsam haben, als sie ahnen. Und bald schon überschlagen sich die Ereignisse ...

Feministisch! Herrlich sarkastisch! Und gar nicht dämlich! Können Frauen Genies sein? Oder sind ihre Arme zu kurz und ihre Köpfe zu klein? Warum haben wir im Geschichtsunterricht nur über zwei drei Frauen etwas gelernt? Was haben eigentlich all die anderen früher gemacht? »Jacky Fleming schaut genau hin – und das muss sie auch, denn sie sind schwer zu finden: Frauen in der Geschichte.« The Guardian »Schon der Anblick der weiblichen Gestalt lehrt, dass das Weib weder zu großen geistigen, noch körperlichen Arbeiten bestimmt ist.« Arthur Schopenhauer
