This is an auction for CRAZY HORSE: THE STRANGE MAN OF THE OGLALAS, by Mari Sandoz.

"Here is a glorious hero tale told with beauty and power . . . the story of a great American."
- New York Times

"One of the great stories of the West, and written. . .in the spirit of the sages, with a scrupulous regard for truth and history."
- Atlantic Monthly (US)

"This history of the Oglala Indian Crazy Horse is a splendidly done thing. Sandoz gives a magnificent picture of the Plains Indian civilization."
- Washington Star (US)

Amazon.com review:

“Crazy Horse, the military leader of the Oglala Sioux whose personal power and social nonconformity set him off as "strange," fought in many famous battles, including the one at the Little Bighorn. He held out boldly against the government's efforts to confine the Sioux on reservations. Finally, in the spring of 1877 he surrendered, one of the last important chiefs to do so, only to meet a violent death. Mari Sandoz, the author of Cheyenne Autumn and Old Jules, has captured the spirit of Crazy Horse with a strength and nobility befitting his heroism.”
