Children's LiteratureThe story of Crazy Horse's life, including his early childhood, is testimony to the dignity of the American Indians whose land we occupy. Their lives together show great respect for their family and tribe members. Through this rendition we learn how they lived on a daily basis, how they reared their children, their customs, and their love of their sacred land. Although the Indians only wanted peace and to be left alone to live their lives as they had always done, American soldiers kept coming and disturbing them. When the government ordered them onto reservations, several wars took place. The Battle of Little Bighorn was the greatest military defeat experienced by the U.S. Military. Readers will experience a true understanding of our Native Americans, what they stood for, and how we destroyed a truly dignified way of life. 2005, Aladdin Paperbacks, Ages 8 to 12.
