9780803217874: Crazy Horse, Third Edition: The Strange Man of the Oglalas, Third Edition

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.

About the Author:

Mari Sandoz (1896–1966) is the noted author of Cheyenne Autumn, Old Jules, and The Battle of the Little Bighorn (all available in Bison Books editions).  Vine Deloria Jr. (1933–2005) is the author of many books, including Custer Died for Your Sins: An Indian Manifesto and Red Earth, White Lies: Native Americans and the Myth of Scientific Fact.

Review:

“Here is a glorious hero tale told with beauty and power . . . the story of a great American.”—John G. Neihardt, New York Times (John G. Neihardt New York Times)

“[One] of the great stories of the West, and written . . . in the spirit of the sages, with a scrupulous regard for truth and history.”—Atlantic Monthly (Atlantic Monthly)

“This history of the Oglala Indian Crazy Horse is a splendidly done thing. [Sandoz] gives a magnificent picture of the Plains Indian civilization.”—Washington Star (Washington Star)

“The urge to shape political policy and attitudes by capturing an aura of her subjects is best exemplified by Sandoz’s passionate intensity in the writing of the book Crazy Horse.” —Mary Dixon, Great Plains Quarterly (Great Plains Quarterly 2007-03-09)
