The story of the Nokota horse is above all the story of the Northern Plains of the American continent before the coming of the Europeans. From the Missouri River to the Rocky Mountains, the Northern Plains were a vast, wild ocean of grass waving in the wind, traversed by enormous herds of bison and small groups of horses as free as antelope. The late nineteenth century brought profound change to all life on the plains – the precipitous fall of the native peoples at the height of their civilization, the extermination of the bison, and the exploitation of the wild prairie for agriculture. The survival of the Indian horses – indispensable for hunting, war, and transportation – through this period of change and into the twentieth century is due to a unique combination of circumstance and luck that mingles personal and national history. The horses share the history of the West with men like Sitting Bull, Theodore Roosevelt, George Armstrong Custer and the Marquis de Mores. Last Bullet is the story of one such horse.
