Abstract:

One of the best known, least known names and personalities in American history, Crazy Horse has been glamorized or demonized in countless movies. But it was Mari Sandoz, born not far from where Crazy Horse was born and author of nearly two dozen books of western history, biography and fiction, who first told the true story of the military leader of the Oglala Sioux. To tell his story, Mari Sandoz deliberately attempts to imitate the Indian oral tradition. She uses "the simplest words possible, hoping by idiom and figures and the underlying rhythm pattern to say some of the things of the Indians for which there are no white-man words." The result has been called a masterpiece of lyrical brilliance, a tour de force of language and style. It is an unforgettable work about an unforgotten man. --from Amazon.com.
