Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

 No one captures the glory, adventure, and drama of the courageous men and women who tamed the American West like award-winning, bestselling author Terry C. Johnston. His Plainsmen series brims with colorful characters, fierce battles, and compelling historical lore.

LAY THE MOUNTAINS LOW

One man struck fear in the hearts of U.S. soldiers on the frontier like no other:

Crazy Horse, the great Oglala Sioux leader who destroyed Custer at Little Big Horn, fought Crook toe-to-toe at the Rosebud, and outwitted and outran the Cavalry across the windswept plains of his youth. Then, in 1877,with his surrender to a young lieutenant, a new tale of heroism and betrayal would begin. This is the epic story of the last days of Crazy Horse—a man whose name will forever be cloaked in legend.

 “Rich and fascinating…There is a genuine flavor of the period and of the men who made it what it was.”—Washington Post Book World

Synopsis:

TURN THE STARS UPSIDE DOWN
Terry Johnston
 
For more than a decade one man struck fear in the hearts of U.S. soldiers on the frontier: Crazy horse, the great Oglala Sioux leader, who destroyed Custer at Little Big Horn, fought Crook toe-to-toe at the Rosebud, and outwitted and outran the Cavalry across the windswept plains where as a child he had played. Now, on a cloudless day in May, the legendary warrior rode toward the soldiers who had been his enemy for so long. In 1877, Crazy horse surrendered to a young lieutenant, and tale of betrayal and murder began.

In this powerful, moving account of the last days of Crazy Horse, Terry C. Johnson weaves a saga of warriors, lovers, peacemakers, traitors, war, and suffering among the innocents on both sides. Most of all, this is the story of one man--a mystic, a fighter, a father and husband--whose last journey was as fateful and dramatic as a life lived without surrender.

Synopsis:

In 1877, Crazy Horse, the great Oglala Sioux leader who destroyed Custer at Little Big Horn, surrenders to a young lieutenant. So begins a tale of betrayal and murder in this powerful, moving account of the last days of this legendary warrior whose final journey is as fateful and dramatic as a life lived without surrender.
