Crazy Horse - Paperback
This book, written by descendants of Crazy Horse, presents an in-depth recounting of the life of the Lakota warrior and the legacy he left behind from a Native perspective.
Now in paperback, the Edward Clown family, nearest living relatives to the Lakota war leader, in conjunction with William B. Matson, presents the family tales and memories told to them about their famous grandfather. In many ways the oral history differs from what has become the standard and widely accepted biography of Crazy Horse. The family clarifies the inaccuracies and shares their story about the past, including what it means to them to be Lakota, the family genealogy, the life of Crazy Horse and his motivations, his death, and why they chose to keep quiet with their knowledge for so long before finally deciding to tell the truth as they know it.
This book is a compelling addition to the body of works about Crazy Horse and the complicated and often conflicting events of that time period in American History.
