Coyote Warrior: One Man, Three Tribes, and the Trial That Forged a Nation by Paul Van Develder

The last of a tribal chairmans ten children, Raymond Cross was six when the waters behind the Garrison Dam closed over his home. This massive public work flooded the rich bottomlands that had sustained North Dakotas Three Affiliated Tribes for a thousand years.As the waters rose, the government dispersed the tribes-young Raymond among them-to distant cities. His father, who had spent years fighting the dam, was left behind, a broken man. At his fathers graveside, Raymond Cross found his path.After Yale Law, after winning landmark cases on behalf of other tribes, Cross returned to his homeland to fight for his own shattered people. His journey led him back to the Congress his father had battled 40 years before, and into the chambers of the Supreme Court.There, the descendent of the chief who had saved the lives of Lewis and Clark would lay the case for the survival of Indian Country at the feet of nine justices wearing the black robes of the nations highest court.
