Crazy Horse by Mari Sandoz
Book DescriptionCrazy Horse, the legendary military leader of the Oglala Sioux whose personal power and social nonconformity contributed to his reputation as being "strange," fought in many famous battles, including the Little Bighorn, and held out tirelessly against the U.S. government's efforts to confine the Lakotas to reservations. Finally, in the spring of 1877 he surrendered, only to meet a violent death. More than a century later Crazy Horse continues to hold a special place in the hearts and minds of his people. Mari Sandoz offers a powerful evocation of the long-ago world and enduring spirit of Crazy Horse. Chosen as a 2007 One Book, One Nebraska selection, this edition of Crazy Horse includes discussion questions and a comprehensive glossary to enhance the reader's experience with this classic Sandoz text.

Books By Author Mari Sandoz
Cattlemen, Paperback (April 2010)
Tells the story of the cattle industry in America and of the men whose ranches reached from the Rio Grande into Montana, from the early Spanish days to Mari Sandoz's contemporary times. This book narrates the history of the American West in relation to animal species.
Beaver Men, Paperback (January 2010)
Covering more than two centuries, this book recounts the beginning of the beaver trade along the St Lawrence to the last great rendezvous of traders and trappers on Ham's Fork, in what is now Wyoming, in 1834.
Buffalo Hunters, Paperback (December 2008)
In 1867, conservative estimates put the number of buffaloes in the trans-Missouri region at fifteen million. By the end of the 1880s, that figure had dwindled to a few hundred. This title focuses on the destruction of the great herds.
Old Jules, Paperback (April 2005)» View all books by Mari Sandoz
A portrait of the author's pioneer father that grew out of the hours of listening behind the stove or the wood box. This book contains the accounts of the hunts, of the fights with the cattlemen and the sheepmen, of the scarcity of women, when a man had to 'marry anything that got off the train,' of the droughts, storms, wind and isolation.
