(From the publisher):
For more than a decade one man struck fear into the hearts of U.S. soldiers on the frontier: Crazy Horse, the great Oglala Sioux leader, who destroyed Custer at Little Bighorn, fought Crook to-to-toe at the Rosebud, and outwitted and outran the Cavalry across the windswept plains where as a child he had played. Now, on a cloudless day in May, the legendary warrior rode toward the soldiers who had been his enemy for so long. In 1877, Crazy Horse surrendered to a young lieutenant, and a tale of betrayal and murder began.
In this powerful, moving account of the last days of Crazy Horse, Terry C. Johnston weaves a saga of warriors, lovers, peacemakers, traitors, war, and suffering among the innocent on both sides. Most of all, this is the story of one man - a mystic, a fighter, a father and husband - whose last journey was as fateful and dramatic as a life lived without surrender.
