A Good Day to Die
With the ever-growing domination of the encroaching white man, the Plains Indians were fighting desperately to preserve their lands, their sacred traditions, their very existence as a people. And as they neared Wounded Knee Creek, the people of the plains asked themselves each day if it was a good day to die. Set against the drama of the Plains Indians’s last fight for freedom is the love story between Chance Easterbrook, a correspondent for the New York Herald, and Shining Woman, daughter of a Sioux chief.
