Inspired by interpreter William Garnett’s account that made the killing of Crazy Horse “seem so unnecessary,” Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Thomas Powers has woven together a cast of characters who help us understand the century-old, controversial killing of the Sioux leader.

These include Red Cloud, who saw Crazy Horse as a rival, Little Big Man, who betrayed him and Fast Thunder, who held him when he was stabbed. Never before has this story been told so masterfully.
