From White Shield to Washington DC, new Indian wars are being fought by Ivy League-trained lawyers called "Coyote Warriors"—among them a Mandan/Hidatsa named Raymond Cross. Coyote Warrior tells the epic story of the three tribes that saved Lewis and Clark's Corps of Discovery from starvation, their century-long battle to forge a new nation, and the extraordinary journey of one man to redeem a father's dream—and the dignity of his people.

Cross graduated from law school and, following his father's death, returned home to resurrect his father's fight against the federal government. His mission would lead him to Congress, which his father had battled forty years before, and into the hallowed chambers of the U.S. Supreme Court. There the great-great-grandson of Chief Cherry Necklace would lay at the feet of the nation's highest court the case for the sanctity of the U.S. Constitution, treaty rights, and the legal survival of Indian Country.
