"In 1877, the Ponca people were exiled from their Nebraska homeland to Indian Territory in present-day Oklahoma. To honor his dying son's last wish to be buried in his homeland, Chief Standing Bear set off on a grueling, six-hundred-mile journey home. Captured en-route, Standing Bear sued a famous U.S. army general for his freedom-- choosing to fight injustice not with weapons, but with words. The Chief stood before the court to prove that an Indian was a person under the law. The story quickly made newspaper headlines-- attracting powerful allies, as well as enemies. Stirring a nation's conscience and challenging the meaning of freedom, Standing Bear's Footsteps chronicles an Indian chief's odyssey, ending in a battle for civil rights unlike any other in American history."
