Summary: Blood Brothers flashes back to 1876, when the Lakota wiped out Custer’s 7th Cavalry unit at the Little Big Horn. Sitting Bull did not participate in the “last stand,” but was nearby—and blamed for killing Custer. The book also flashes forward to 1890, when Sitting Bull was assassinated. Hours before, Cody rushed to Sitting Bull’s cabin at Standing Rock, unsuccessfully dispatched by the army to avert disaster. Blood Brothers is a timeless story of people from different cultures who crossed barriers to engage each other as human beings. It foretells today’s battle on the Great Plains.
