In The Trial of Standing Bear, award-winning author and former Oklahoma Governor Frank Keating tells of the anguish and resolve of Ponca Chief Standing Bear and his people as they are forced from their homeland and their subsequent fight to be treated like human beings.

Through the historically-accurate illustrations of Oklahoma artist Mike Wimmer, you will follow Chief Standing Bear, his family, and members of his tribe from their forced removal from the banks of the Niobrara River in northeast Nebraska to Indian Territory, and the ultimate victory that began the long struggle for civil rights for Native Americans.
