?This book is ideal fare for the reader who has always wanted a source that illuminates the rich history and diversity of Sioux culture ? one that includes insightful lessons in cross-cultural understanding.? W. Raymond Wood, University of Missouri ?Guy Gibbon?s The Sioux: The Dakota and Lakota Nations is the first attempt to write about the Sioux from prehistory to the present in a single volume. This book is a valuable starting point for readers interested in Sioux history and culture.? Raymond J. DeMallie, Indiana University "Readable and sophisticated, this book covers both the famous western Sioux of the plains (Lakota) and the less well known forest dwelling eastern Dakota, from the earliest humans in their Minnesota homeland (9500 BCE) to 2000 CE. Suitable as a text, the book engages general readers too." Choice
