Review: The Life and Death of Crazy Horse

User Review  - Goodreads

Read aloud in the car on our trip to South Dakota & Wyoming. Great way for all of us to learn some of the history behind the monuments & national parks before we visited. Sad and moving tribute. Well written. Brought to life the fantastic Crazy Horse monument. Read full review
