Crazy Horse and Custer weaves together the story of two men who came from very different backgrounds to meet at one historic battle. I had not read much about American Indians prior to this and was fascinated by the stories about their culture, hero’s and spirituality. Unfortunately this book also documents a time in American history that shows some of the atrocities of the U.S. Government and how they took advantage of the situation. This book is a learning experience told through great storytelling.

Stephen Ambrose had a great talent for weaving together historical facts into a story that reads like a novel. It was an enjoyable journey from beginning to end and has prompted an interest beyond the book to go visit the sites and places these events took place at.

As one last note, I also found this book interesting as a narrative on manhood. This book looks at the lives of two boys, who became admired men in their culture, and tells us how they got there, what motivated them and the people around them who influenced them in different ways. Boys, men and fathers may find interesting bits of wisdom hidden in these pages.

A look into the past

This was an excellent book to read. It was filled with information about the Sioux Indians and Custer. It is a must book to read if you are interested in the relationship between the US Army and the Sioux Indians.
