Lawsuits filed against the book by the South Dakota Governor and an FBI Special Agent caused the book to disappear for seven years. Sarah Bad Heart Bulls riveting role at the courthouse in Custer, South Dakota is recounted in Matthiessens book. She was arrested for arson and riot. But what happened after Sarah was thrown in prison? In Custer Court House Incident, Reno author Jacklynn Lord tells the rest of the story. Sarahs only surviving son-Vincent Bad Heart Bull-was first incarcerated at 17. Now 54, Vincent remains in prison. Is he a victim of what could be described as endemic American racism? Acquiring transcripts from Vincents cases, Lord has woven courtroom drama into a beautifully written biography of the Lakota Sioux artist and spiritual leader known as Vincent Bad Heart Bull.
