BINDING/CONDITION: wine colored boards; a Near Fine book, with a Near Fine dust jacket; publisher's price intact on the jacket flap. Illustrated in black and white with historic photographs.

Angry and humiliated, she later harnessed her anger and became a native American reformer. Renaming herself Zitkala-Sa, which means Red Bird, she devoted her life to making white audiences aware of the injustices done to Native Americans.
