KIRKUS REVIEW

Chief Red Horse, a participant the Battle of Little Bighorn, gave his account in sign language five years later, and a US Army surgeon wrote it down with diagrams and descriptions of the signs. It is that account that is set forth here, in a string of pictures (eight to the page) showing Red Horse signing, with the words his gestures stand for running along below. The book could serve as novel supplementary material for class projects, but it's not the best account of the battle. For a dramatic, handsomely illustrated, in-depth report, the Gobles' fictitious Red Hawk still has the last word.
