Of all the great warriors of Native America, Crazy Horse remains the most enigmatic. Scorned from his childhood for his light hair, he was a man who spurned the love of finery and honors so characteristic of Lakota Sioux warriors. Despite these differences, Crazy Horse led his people to their greatest victory at the Battle of the Little Big Horn where General Custer fell.

Crazy Horse's entire life was a triumph of the spirit. In youth, Crazy Horse was set aside by his powerful vision of Rider, the spiritual expression of his future greatness, and by the passion and grief of his overwhelming love for a woman. It was only in battle that his heart could find rest. As his world crumbled, Crazy Horse managed to find his way in harmony with the age-old wisdom of the Lakota—and to beat the US Army on its own terms. He lived, and died, his own man.

Review: Stone Song: A Novel of the Life of Crazy Horse

User Review  - Gear W. Michael Gear - Goodreads

Crazy Horse is one of those spectacular American heroes, but no one has ever captured the spiritual underpinnings of his life the way this book does. A "must read" for all fans of western, Native Americian, or historical fiction. Read full review
