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.
