Crazy Horse, The Strange Man of the Oglalas
Crazy Horse, The Strange Man of the Oglalas 3rd edition by Mari Sandoz
Introduction by Vine Deloria Jr.
Updated with supplemental materials
Crazy Horse, the military leader of the Oglala Sioux whose personal power and social nonconformity set him off as "strange," fought in many famous battles, including the one at the Little Bighorn. He held out boldly against the government's efforts to confine the Sioux on reservations. Finally, in the spring of 1877 he surrendered, one of the last important chiefs to do so, 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.
