Sitting Bull lives on in legacy as a Native American chief who fought against white oppression. When the US government broke land treaties to seek gold in the Black Hills, Sitting Bull took a stand against the desecration of this sacred land. He led his people, the Hunkpapa Lakota, through a period of resistance amidst crisis.

He persisted through the end of the Great Sioux Wars, famously facing off against George Armstrong Custer in the 1876 Battle of the Little Bighorn. Though shot and killed in 1890, Sitting Bull's immortal spirit of resistance continues to inspire oppressed groups to this day.

Very good intro to a fascinating man.

Really liked this introduction. How was I ok with only having a passing knowledge of this important historical figure. Sitting Bull’s life was as important as it was fascinating. Glad to have gotten to know him a little better.

Narrator was spot on!

A learning experience that is well worth the time

Sitting Bull: An Immortal Spirit of Resistance
I have listened to several of these titles and they continue to impress me. This work, as do others in the series serves as a taster for the subject matter given. The information contained in accurate and in just enough depth to give clear understanding of the topic. In that they are only about an hour long they are ideal for a lunch break or two
I would highly recommend these titles to anyone that has even a passing interest or simple curiosity about history

Short and Sweet

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. This review is for the audio copy of Sitting Bull: An Immortal Spirit of Resistance, by in60Learning and narrated by Larry G. Jones. I really like the in60Learning books. They remind me of the short story history books I read as a kid. This book is one of my favorite in60Learning books. They are quick, loaded with information, and entertaining.

Sitting Bull

I love being able to get a one hour history lesson in subjects that I really don't know much about. In60Learning gives the listener the opportunity to get a glimpse into an aspect of our history and culture in a very short time. This is a great way to learn a little bit in order to see if you are interested in a more in-depth study of the topic.

Most of my knowledge about Sitting Bull has been gathered from watching Western movies and TV shows (which I know are notoriously inaccurate). I knew that he was a fascinating man and this short narrative just gave me further proof of that. My one complaint about this book is that I would have preferred more about Sitting Bull and less about the movies/TV shows that portrayed this amazing warrior. I think that the time spent on the one chapter that was devoted to this could have been used to give more information about the true Sitting Bull.

The narrator was pretty good, but was a little monotone for my taste. I found myself having to "rewind" a few times because I wasn't listening due to his voice. Also, this book has the same problem that I find throughout the Western genre: the narrator should know how to pronounce "Cavalry" properly! This is one of my pet peeves in watching Western TV shows and movies.

I was given the opportunity to listen to this Audiobook by In60Learning and chose to review it.

Love Learning in 60 Mins

I just enjoyed another book from in60Learning. I love how this series of books allows you to learn about an individual in about an hour. This book was based on Sitting Bull, who was a Lakota Indian and gave background of him growing up, Battle of Little Bighorn, his life as a performer on Buffalo Bill's Wild West shows and his friendship with Annie Oakley. Great quick listen!
