Buffalo Calf Road Woman 
The Story of a Warrior of the Little Bighorn
by Rosemary Agonito and Joseph Agonito 
 
As the Cheyenne fought that June day in 1876, warrior Comes in Sight faced grave danger. His horse had been shot out from under him, and he was left stranded on the battlefield. Suddenly, a rider galloped through enemy fire, pulled Comes in Sight onto the back of her horse, and spirited him to safety. It was Buffalo Calf Road Woman - the warrior's own sister.

The young Cheyenne woman's act of bravery earned her the status and name "Brave Woman." While white men refer to this clash as the Battle of the Rosebud, the Cheyenne know it as the battle "Where the Girl Saved Her Brother." Days later, Buffalo Calf fought at the Battle of Little Bighorn - the only woman to do so.

In Buffalo Calf Road Woman, authors Rosemary Agonito and Joseph Agonito depict the life and times of this brave young woman - a Cheyenne who witnessed the devastating effects of white man's westward migration. Based on true events and people of the times, this epic tale of love and war is an inspiring journey through one of history's most moving sagas..
