Crazy Horse, the Strange Man of the Oglalas: A Biography

by

Crazy Horse, the Strange Man of the Oglalas: A Biography Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Crazy Horse, the military leader of the Oglala Sioux whose personal power and social nonconformity set him off as "strange," fought in many famous battles, including the one at the Little Bighorn. He held out boldly against the government's efforts to confine the Sioux on reservations. Finally, in the spring of 1877 he surrendered, one of the last important chiefs to do so, only to meet a violent death. Mari Sandoz, the noted author of Cheyenne Autumn and Old Jules, both available as Bison Books, has captured the spirit of Crazy Horse with a strength and nobility befitting his heroism.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 417-422).
