Crazy Horse, the legendary military leader of the Oglala Sioux
whose personal power and social nonconformity contributed to his
reputation as being “strange,” fought in many famous battles,
including the Little Bighorn, and held out tirelessly against the
U.S. government’s efforts to confine the Lakotas to reservations.
Finally, in the spring of 1877 he surrendered, only to meet a
violent death. More than a century later Crazy Horse continues to
hold a special place in the hearts and minds of his people. Mari
Sandoz offers a powerful evocation of the long-ago world and
enduring spirit of Crazy Horse. Chosen as a 2007 One Book, One
Nebraska selection, this edition of Crazy Horse includes discussion
questions and a comprehensive glossary to enhance the reader's
experience with this classic Sandoz text.
