I decided to read this book due to my interest in native american and american west history. This is the first book by Thomas Powers that I have read.
This is a very well researched book that covers the life of Crazy Horse in extreme detail. It makes it a challenging and exhausting read due to the author’s focus on the details without making it compelling. He also has a tendency to be repetitive at times in different parts of the book.
This book is not for someone who is looking for an informative and easy to read writing style on the events of Crazy Horse’s life.
