    2. The author, an Oglala Sioux, writes of two Sioux war chiefs while discussing the history and spirituality of the Sioux. The work is based in a large part on the translations of oral interviews by a Jesuit priest who spoke the language and was able to talk to the Sioux elders who had been alive in the 1870s and present at the battles. He points out errors of biographies by white historians who did not speak the Sioux language. This is a great historical read that adds a new perspective on Crazy H [...]

    3. I picked up this book at the Crazy Horse Memorial. I feel it is a MUST READ book. It tells much of Sioux/Lakota/Oglala experience from their perspective, spirituality. How American Indian people lived on the land and their journey, survival and non-survival, from the greedy White Man. READ THIS BOOK and Then Pass it on to Others to share the Oglala story from the native perspective not White Man's history book perspective.

    4. Picked this book up at the Crazy Horse Memorial. Very interesting as it was written by a Sioux author who was a Marine helicopter pilot with combat experience. I enjoyed the explanations of the Sioux culture and religion and their impact on the Sioux warriors and their dealings with the white man. The book spanned the 1850's until Wounded Knee. A great read if you are into the History of the American West.

    5. This is a book I bought during my recent vacation to South Dakota and Yellowstone National Park.This book told the stories of Crazy Horse and Chief Red Cloud from the Sioux's point of view. Very good book.

    6. This is a fascinating history of the two men written by a Lakota man whose experience as a combat veteran of Vietnam gives him valuable insights into these two warriors and the fights they led. It could use another round of editing, but I still recommend it.

    7. I greatly enjoyed the perspective of the author. Informative, historically accurate, and refreshingly straightforward.

    8. Quite good. Without a bit of the cultures involved you don't a thorough understanding of history I think. So, I'm glad the author added it in to help tell the narrative.
