In 1875, Sitting Bull begins gathering thousands of Lakota to face the growing problem of white incursion. What follows is a sweeping tale of the Battle of the Little Bighorn (the Greasy Grass battle) and the remarkable victory.

Available in hardcover only.  The Long Knives are Crying, by Joseph M. Marshall III.  2008, 441 pages.

The second novel in Joseph M. Marshall’s acclaimed Lakota Westerns series, The Long Knives are Crying begins ten years after the events in Hundred in the Hand, in 1875, as Sitting Bull begins gathering thousands of Lakota to face the growing problem of white incursion. What follows is a sweeping tale of the Battle of the Little Bighorn (the Greasy Grass battle) and the remarkable defeat of General George Custer of the Seventh Cavalry, including the days and weeks leading up to the conflict and the lesser-known but strategically important Battle of the Rosebud. Told from the Native perspective through the eyes of the veteran warrior Cloud, The Long Knives are Crying goes beyond the story of the battle to create an authentic vision of the Lakota way of life. Once again, Marshall imparts his unique voice and eye for detail, creating a page-turning Western with a style all its own.

Joseph M. Marshall III is an author, Lakota craftsman, lecturer, actor, primitive archer, and historical consultant. He was born and raised on the Rosebud Sioux Reservation and his first language is Lakota. Marshall is the author of ten books, including one for children.

Marshall’s latest work can be seen and heard in Turner Network Television and Dreamworks’s epic television miniseries Into the West. He was the series’s Native technical advisor, the Native voiceover narrator, and appeared as a Lakota medicine man.
