Library Journal
Sandoz unfurls the story of the noted Oglala Sioux warrior who fought many battles for his people's independence, culminating with wiping out Custer's troops at the Little Bighorn. Despite his apparent standoffishness, Crazy Horse was a charismatic leader and clever strategist. This 1942 volume paints a detailed portrait. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
Great Plains Quarterly

“The urge to shape political policy and attitudes by capturing an aura of her subjects is best exemplified by Sandoz’s passionate intensity in the writing of the book Crazy Horse.” —Mary Dixon, Great Plains Quarterly

    The Great Oglala Lakota Warrior

    This was a totally moving true life story of the great Oglala Lakota warrior, Crazy Horse. Any one who is interested in his life would definitely benefit from this book. The author did extensive research on her subject and interviewed many of Crazy Horse's surviving relatives and fellow warriors. I could not put this book down. It made me cry for this Strange Man of the Oglalas, who just wanted to protect his people and way of life.

    Immerse yourself in the life and mind of the Oglala Lakota with this biography of Crazy Horse. A dozen years in the making, Sandoz's work vividly portrays the life of the Lakota and the end of the way of life they had known for centuries.
