Blood Brothers: The Story of the Strange Friendship between Sitting Bull and Buffalo Bill


Deanne Stillman is a widely published, critically acclaimed writer. Her books include the just-published Blood Brothers (recipient of starred review in Kirkus, and Doug Brinkley calls it "a landmark achievement"), Desert Reckoning(winner of the Spur and LA Press Club Awards for nonfiction), and Mustang, a Los Angeles Times Best Book of the Year. In addition, she wrote the cult classic, Twentynine Palms, a Los Angeles Times bestseller that Hunter Thompson called, “A strange and brilliant story by an important American writer.” She writes the “Letter from the West” column for the Los Angeles Review of Books and is a member of the core faculty at the UC Riverside-Palm Desert MFA Low Residency Creative Writing Program.

Stillman’s newest book, Blood Brothers, explores the little-known story of the unlikely friendship between these two famous figures in the American West, told through their time in Cody’s Wild West show in the 1880s.
