Overview

Of all the great warriors of Native America, Crazy Horse remains the most enigmatic. Scorned from childhood for his light hair, a man who spurned the love of finery and honors so characteristic of Lakota Sioux warriors, Crazy Horse led his people to their greatest victory, at the Greasy Grass: the Battle of the Little Big Horn, where General Custer fell. But the Greasy Grass was not Crazy Horse's greatest personal victory. As Blevins shows with stunning historical accuracy and lightning storytelling, Crazy Horse's entire life was a triumph of the spirit. In youth, Crazy Horse was set apart by his powerful vision of Rider, the spiritual expression of his future greatness, and by the passion and grief of his overwhelming love for a woman. It was only in battle, he learned, that his heart could find rest.

"This novel is a genuine masterpiece. I can't imagine any book, past or future, novel or biography, that can approach it in giving the reader a sense of who this mysterious man really was and what he stood for."--Rocky Mountain News.

Editorial Reviews

Bonnie Smothers
His Crazy Horse, known as Crazy Horse in contemporary American lore, was an enigma to his own people as well as to the outside world. Scorned from childhood for his light hair and spurning himself the finery and honors Lakota Sioux warriors seek, he was a loner who embraced Indian culture in its pristine state, before corrupting contact with the whites. Starting from a quest to understand His Crazy Horse, Blevins presents a fascinating, living history that he has fictionalized in order to explore freely the deeply spiritual life and culture that motivated His Crazy Horse. The novel is powerful because it transports nonnative readers to a world, to a vision of Native American life, that before had been a romance, or worse. And it is, to Western eyes, a brutal world, a primitive world, and many will not regret its destruction by the West. But this novel re-creates the time and the world of His Crazy Horse, the warrior who led his people to their greatest victory at the Greasy Grass (the Little Big Horn), remained true to his culture, and died his own man.
