Crazy Horse by Mr Jon Sterngass


Crazy Horse by Mr Jon Sterngass

The life of Crazy Horse, the greatest warrior of the Lakota people, is filled with mystery. He did not leave any letters, diaries, or speeches, and it is still unclear whether his death was a murder or an accident. Yet Crazy Horse remains a compelling symbol of freedom and dignity. As whites invaded Lakota lands and the buffalo herds shrank, many Lakota settled on reservations. Crazy Horse, however, completely rejected the reservation system and negotiations with the invaders. He helped lead the Lakota in two of the greatest defeats ever suffered by the U.S. Army: the Fetterman Fight in 1866 and the Battle of Little Bighorn against General George Armstrong Custer in 1876. In Crazy Horse, read about this mysterious man who played a large role in the Native American battles in the West.
