Format: Paperback
This is the 2009 2nd Edition, Revised. Robert M. Utley, the dean of western historians, has reviewed this book. He said: "A well-told account of a little-known band of Lakota Sioux that resisted return to U.S. reservations. They chose the freedom of the Canadian prairies to the dismal life of the reservations in America."They Never Surrendered: The Lakota Sioux Band That Stayed in CanadaThey Never Surrendered: The Lakota Sioux Band That Stayed in Canada

The Lost Band of Lakota Sioux 2 May 2008
By Robert Schumann - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book clears up the mystery of what happened to the Lakota Sioux who escaped to Canada with Sitting Bull, but never returned to the United States. This is the lost band of Lakota Sioux. Their exact number is calculated. In fact, the whole book is well documented with over 200 endnotes throughout the work. Also, new information about Wounded Knee and the two famous Lakota Chiefs named "Black Moon". The author has taken the time to go up to Canada and get to know the people he writes about. Well done!

Quote From Cheyenne River Lakota Nation 23 May 2008
By Dawn M. Gruenburg - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Here is a quote from a Lakota Sioux living at the Cheyenne River reservation in South Dakota:

"I have read "They Never Surrendered" by Ron Papandrea. His research on the Lakota who won the Battle of the Little Big Horn, and escaped the army by crossing the Medicine Line into Canada, is a valuable work for anyone interested in learning about my people. It covers a little known part of Lakota, American and Canadian history. As a person who is a descendant of these Lakota men and women, I consider this book an important record."

Wood Mountain Lakota 28 Jun. 2008
By Ronald A. Bull - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
They Never Surrendered: The Lakota Sioux Band That Stayed In CanadaA very well researched and presented history of the "Wood Mountain Lakota" who remained in Canada after the surrender of Sitting Bull in 1881.
This book is full of endnotes, appendices, maps and photos, and is a must for anyone interested in the Sioux in Canada.
Well worth the money!

Some rare history 21 Dec. 2012
By Calamity Marcy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I was once described by a friend as being an incurable romantic. So, it's no mystery that while on my solo hikes on the prairie north of the Frenchman River west of Wood Mountain, to observe and photograph an herd of wild buffalo, I could almost feel the spirit of past permeating me.
I've read and re-read "Son of the Morning Star" and "Frontier Farewell" to gain understanding of the events of the prairie past. I always wondered about the Wood Mountain Lakota knowing little about them except that they were a remnant of Sitting Bull's exodus.
The author very fortunate to have had the opportunity to have had contact with the descendants of those who stayed. We, the readers are fortunate to have benefitted from his work and knowledge.
Obviously the book was a labour of love.

They Never Surrendered 3 April 2009
By Louis R. Garcia - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a well researched book.
Good maps.
However I would recommend this book to only serious Lakota historins.
This is a book for researchers, not for reading pleasure.
