Sarah Winnemucca by Sally Zanjani

This book is the triumphant and moving story of Sarah Winnemucca (1844-91), one of the most influential and charismatic Native women in American history.  Born into a legendary family of Piute leaders in western Nevada, Sarah dedicated much of her life to working for her people. 

She played an instrumental and controversial role as interpreter and and messenger for the U.S. Army during the Bannock War of 1878 and traveled to Washington in 1880 to obtain the release of her people from confinement on the Yakama Reservation.

In 1883 she produced her autobiography—the first written by a Native woman—and founded a Native school whose educational practices were far ahead of its time.
