Of all the great warriors of Native America, Crazy Horse remains the most enigmatic. Scorned from his childhood for his light hair, he was a man who spurned the love of finery and honors so characteristic of Lakota Sioux warriors. Despite these differences, Crazy Horse led his people to their greatest victory at the Battle of the Little Big Horn where General Custer fell.
Crazy Horse''s entire life was a triumph of the spirit. In youth, Crazy Horse was set aside by his powerful vision of Rider, the spiritual expression of his future greatness, and by the passion and grief of his overwhelming love for a woman. It was only in battle that his heart could find rest. As his world crumbled, Crazy Horse managed to find his way in harmony with the age-old wisdom of the Lakota--and to beat the US Army on its own terms. He lived, and died, his own man.
From the Publisher:
A Spur Award-winning retelling of the Battle of the Big Horn finds Lakota Sioux leader Crazy Horse endeavoring to reconcile his own beliefs with the wisdom of his tribe and leading his people into a conflict against General Custer and the U.S. Army.
Annotation:
Adorned with distinctive war paint and accompanied by his spirit guide, Hawk, Crazy Horse led his Sioux warriors into many of the frontier's most famous battles, including the battle of Little Big Horn. This is a fictionalized biography of the greatest war chief of the Sioux Indian nation, a man who embraced the traditional warrior's skills and who was destined for not only triumph and betrayal, but also honor and glory. It won the 1995 Spur Award for Best Western Novel.
