"Crazy Horse said . . . `I'm glad you are come. We are going to fight the white man again.' " So begins the prelude to this lyrically recounted story of the events surrounding the battle for the Black Hills, one of the more disturbing episodes in American history. Though the Native Americans won the major battles, their victory was short-lived. Perhaps, then, victory needs to be dreamed again, and the Native American spirit, vision, and reverence for the land along with it. Tensed against this simple desire to live is the white man's political/military capitulation to power and greed for the gold in the hills sacred to the Sioux. Pomerance, award-winning author of The Elephant Man , possesses an astute dramatic sense, skillfully wedding terse yet colorful poetry and prose as he projects past into future to powerful effect.

In this "dramatic narrative in both prose and poetry," Chief Crazy Horse and his tribe battle Colonel Custer for control of the Black Hills. Pomerance adds modern touches and shifts between Washington and Little Bighorn in what PW called a "stunning evocation of Indian-white conflict."
