Buffalo Calf Road Woman : The Story of a Warrior of the Little Bighorn
Winner of the 2005 Western Heritage Award"
On a fateful June day in 1876, Cheyenne warrior Comes in Sight faced grave danger. His horse had been shot out from under him, and he was left stranded on the battlefield. Suddenly, a rider galloped through enemy fire, pulled Comes in Sight onto the back of her horse, and spirited him to safety. It was Buffalo Calf Road Woman--the warrior's own sister. While white men refer to that clash between the U.S. Cavalry and the Cheyenne as the Battle of the Rosebud, the Cheyenne know it as the battle "Where the Girl Saved Her Brother."
Days later, Buffalo Calf also fought at the Battle of Little Bighorn--the only woman to do so. Today, a controversy is brewing over her role in that battle: Is it possible that she was the warrior who struck the blow that killed General George Armstrong Custer?
In this award-winning novel, authors Rosemary Agonito and Joseph Agonito depict the life and times of this brave young woman and the devastating effects of white man's westward migration. Based on true events, this epic tale of love and war is an inspiring journey through one of history's most moving sagas.
