“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

This is my fourth book on Crazy Horse that I have read in the last six months and I found it very informative. It was one of the more historically, culturally and politically correct works on a very interesting and often misunderstood or misrepresented individual. The author did an incredible job of showing this leader and warriors humble, serving nature.
I would highly recommend this book to any one that is a student of the Indian Wars and the downfall of the American Indian.
