This is an amazing new book on Crazy Horse that we just got in. You won't be disapointed with this one. 398 pages.
"Crazy Horse: A Lakota Life corrects older, idealized accounts - and draws on a greater variety of sources than other recent biographies - to expose the real Crazy Horse, not the brash Sioux warrior we have come to expect, but a modest, reflective man whose courage was anchored in Lakota piety.
Kingsley M. Bray has plumed interviews given by Crazy Horse's contemporaries in the early twentieth century and has consulted modern Lakotas to fill in vital details of Crazy Horse's life.
The result is a comprehensive and fully annotated work that tells the unknown story of Crazy Horse, tracing the forces and events that shaped his inner life and determined the course of his career.
Crazy Horse was as much feared by tribal foes as he was honored by allies. His war record of more than two hundred coups was unmatched by any of his peers, and his rout of Custer at the Little Bighorn reverberates through history. Yet so much about him is unknown or steeped in legend.
