Children's Literature - Denise Daley
As a child he was known as Curly Hair. Curly Hair witnessed much of the unfairness that the Sioux Indians had to endure. The Sioux Indians of the Oglala tribe were hunters. The buffalo that they hunted were able to provide them with all of the food, clothing and shelter that they needed. Western wagon trains, however, drove the buffalo away and as a result, the Sioux began attacking the westerners. Attempts at peace treaties were often unreasonable and imbalanced. Cruel and violent battles erupted between the Sioux Indians and the U.S. Army. Curly Hair earned the title Crazy Horse after he proved his bravery in these battles. Although he was a fearless leader, the story does not have a happy ending. Crazy Horse tired after years of endless fighting, and eventually he moved to a reservation where he was stabbed in the back by someone he once considered a friend. Honest and straightforward, this book chronicles the life of Crazy Horse by highlighting the important events. There are one to two paragraphs of text on one page and a supporting full-size illustration on the following page. All in all, this book is an informative and interesting story of actual events that occurred in our country's history. It is part of the "American Heroes" series. Reviewer: Denise Daley
