He was the most feared and loathed Indian of his time, earning his reputation in surprise victories against the troops of Generals Crook and Custer at the Rosebud and Little Bighorn. Despite his enduring reputation, he has remained an enigma (even the whereabouts of his burial place are unknown, and no portrait or photograph of him exists). Now, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Thomas Powers brings Crazy Horse to life in this vivid work of American history. Powers situates the critical battles won by Crazy Horse within the context of the decades-long conflict between Indian tribes and U.S. Army forces commonly called the Great Sioux Wars. He explores the complicated relationship between the tribes-in particular, Crazy Horse's Lakota Sioux-and the federal authorities. And he makes clear why the few battles won by the Indians-regardless of the fear they left in their wake-did not ultimately help them to stem the tide of settlers, gold seekers, and buffalo hunters that flooded the Great Plains after the Civil War.

Title was misleading. Only one cd out of a total of 17 actually dealt with the details surrounding the killing of Crazy Horse.
Author gives a broad detailed background of all major persons and events that conributed to and formed the context of the killing of the great indian chief.
The result is a very well-researched presentation giving the reader a very good grasp of all of the dynamics playing out in that time and place, culminating with death of Crazy Horse.
