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
