A historically accurate portrait of the Lakota Sioux warrior explores the spiritual side of the victor of the Battle of Little Big Horn, who spurned the love of wealth and praise for the age-old wisdom of his people

Blackwell North Amer
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.
