As conversation heats up over how appropriate the use of Redskins is as a football team's moniker, Bob Drury and Tom Clavin give us The Heart of Everything That Is: The Untold Story of Red Cloud, An American Legend. The extensively researched book tells the largely unknown story of the Oglala Sioux warrior chief, who led the only army to ever defeat the United States in a war, which took two long years to accomplish (1866-1868).
Under Red Cloud's guidance, the Sioux once had control of 20 percent of the contiguous U.S., which makes his obscure profile all the more surprising — and this book all the more necessary.
