This is a continuation of The Plainsman series that Johnston wrote. His facts and figures are historically accurate. Life for the Indians was definately changing, and the hardships they had to live under were terrible. Crazy Horse was never an actual chief, but he was a respected and revered man, by both some Indians, and some of the Cavalrymen. This really tells the story of enforced reservation life, and how the white man could never understand the way the Indians thought.

For more than a decade one man struck fear into the hearts of U.S. soldiers on the frontier: Crazy Horse, the great Oglala Sioux leader, who destroyed Custer at Little Big Horn, fought Crook toe-to-toe at the Rosebud, and outwitted and outran the Cavalry across the windswept plains where as a child he had played. Now, on a cloudless day in May, the legendary warrior rode toward the soldiers who had been his enemy for so long. In 1877, Crazy Horse surrendered to a young lieutenant, and a tale of betrayal and murder began.
