The first full--length biography in over fifty years of the famed Native American chief Called "one of the bravest of the brave," Crazy Horse was a great Native American warrior, a born soldier with a talent for leadership of the highest order. Along with Sitting Bull, he led the monumental Sioux--Cheyenne Uprising of 1876 77, which culminated at Little Big Horn, where General George Custer's entire force was annihilated. Now acclaimed author Mike Sajna brings this legendary warrior back to life in this book about his epic struggle to save his way of life amid the westward movement of white settlers. Sajna follows Crazy Horse from his days as a young boy chasing down wild horses to his later years, including new views on his role in the Battle of Little Big Horn and eventual surrender and murder. Meticulously researched and based on an extensive collection of historic records, Crazy Horse separates the facts from the many myths that have been passed down about the Oglala chief.
Mike Sajna (Pittsburgh, PA) was a freelance journalist and writer, and the author of Days on the Water, The Allegheny River: Watershed of the Nation, and Buck Fever: The Deer Hunting Tradition in Pennsylvania.
