Crazy Horse: A Biography
By Larry McMurty, Read by Scott Brick
Legends cloud the life of Crazy Horse (ca. 1842-1877), a seminal figure in American history but an enigma even to his own people in his own day. This superb biography looks back across more than one hundred and twenty years at the life and death of this great Oglala Sioux warrior who became a reluctant leader at the Battle of the Little Bighorn. With his uncanny gift for understanding the human psyche, Larry McMurtry animates the character of this remarkable figure, whose betrayal by representatives of the U.S. government was a tragic turning point in the history of the West.
