Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
The legendary Sioux warrior Crazy Horse is usually remembered for leading the party that killed Custer, but this vivid biography is sure to expand popular perception beyond that single role. St. George's (Dear Dr. Bell...Your Friend, Helen Keller) portrait includes not only pertinent historical information about Crazy Horse's dealings with the dishonest U.S. military but fascinating details about his personal life as well. She talks of his disastrous love affair with a married woman, his determination to preserve the Sioux nation, his strong friendship with U.S. lieutenant Caspar Collins and his death, brought about by the jealousy of fellow tribal leaders. Thoroughly researched and filled with passion, the action-packed narrative communicates the author's admiration for her subject. Her attention to detail raises the book above the usual level of biography to forge a lasting image of an American hero and the people he loved. Ages 11-14. (Oct.)
School Library Journal
Gr 5-8-St. George's biography is as much a portrait of an era as it is an account of one man's role in history. Using transcripts of interviews conducted in the 1930s with people who knew Crazy Horse as well as other primary sources, the author paints a picture of a taciturn but loyal man who felt it was his destiny to defend his people against the encroachment of white settlers. Woven into the narrative is information about the Sioux culture, alliances, and beliefs (the importance of visions is emphasized). Readers are continually reminded of Crazy Horse's role as a warrior; descriptions of skirmishes and battles (including Little Big Horn) are filled with strategy and tactics, along with comments on failures as well as successes. Although the author states in her introduction that at times she ``...had to imagine what his emotions and reactions would have been,'' she avoids speculation and does not fabricate dialogue. She also mentions the conflicting accounts uncovered in her research regarding some of the details of her subject's life and battles, but does not elaborate on them. Although readable, there are times when the book takes on a tone similar to Crazy Horse's quiet nature, leading to some slow-moving, dry sections. Still, the book will be of interest to readers who are studying Plains Indian history and geography.-Susan Knorr, Milwaukee Public Library, WI
Karen Hutt
Noting the contradictory accounts of Crazy Horse's life and the mystique associated with him, St. George provides a detailed, if at times stilted, account of the legendary Indian leader whose short life has come to personify the struggles of the Lakota Indians during the last half of the 1800s. The narrative is based on extensive research and on her own travels to western Nebraska and South Dakota, where Crazy Horse grew up and fought to preserve a way of life that was quickly being destroyed by white settlers and soldiers. Though the lack of documentation may frustrate readers who wish to investigate specific incidents or aspects of Crazy Horse's life, the appended lengthy bibliography will be helpful.

    Crazy Horse, the tale of the strange looking Sioux Indian boy wh

    Crazy Horse, the tale of the strange looking Sioux Indian boy who grew up to become a famous warrior, a hero. In Judith St. George's greatly written biography of Crazy Horse, we get taken all the way back to when he was an awkward little kid by the name of Curly all the way up to when he becomes a man of great fighting. He fights in war with other Indians as well as having to deal with the lying U.S Military. It also gets into some detail of his personal life. It will stir your emotions as if you are really there in that time. It is beautifully portrayed and very interesting to read. There are details from real family members of the man, as well as information from other sources, so it is pretty accurate. This biography is quite interesting compared to other biographies. Recommended for ages 11-14
