The Killing Of Crazy Horse

This book contains more first and second-hand source materials than many others about the assassination of  Crazy Horse, making the narrative an interesting mix of Indigenous and colonial perspectives on the transition period of the Lakota from free-living peoples to a people experiencing the occupation of their homeland by a ruthless, immoral colonizer. The reader can experience the sense of loss of a people undergoing this as well as Crazy Horse's dilemma in being an honest man trying to make sense of a world where lies hold great value and are often times more valuable than truth.Reading this book is an informative and at times painful , gut-wrenching experience.
