Looking For a Last Minute Christmas Gift Idea? Get Dave’s Book
There's only a few Christmas shopping days left and if you're out of ideas, here's an easy one: Get Dave's new book Crazy Horse: Where My Dead Lie Buried. There are still a few copies available at two local bookstores:
- The Country Bookshelf in downtown Bozeman (28 W. Main)
- The Used Book Emporium (new location at 8492 Huffine east of Ressler)
Both locations have signed copies. Dave also has a few copies himself. Send him an email at Dave@XLcountry.com if you would like to get a book from him. He'll be happy to sign it for you but don't ask him to wrap it for you--he's a terrible Christmas present wrapper.
Crazy Horse: Where My Dead Lie Buried is a book of historical fiction about the Lakota war chief Crazy Horse. The story follows the last 14 months of the Lakota leader's life. It begins at the Battle of the Little Bighorn and ends with his death on the white man's reservation at Camp Robinson, Nebraska.
Here's what what one reader had to say about Dave's book:
I was unable to attend your book release party in Bozeman, however, a friend of mine picked up a book for me and I recently received it in the mail. I sat down to read it thinking I would put aside a good 30 minutes a day to read. The first night I read all of part one and by day three I had completed the book.
I was blown away at the writing and descriptive words used throughout which put me right in the story; even though I knew the outcome the journey through this story was unbelievable.
I am a member of the Confederated Salish and Kootenai tribes of the Flathead Nation and although this story followed the Lakota Warrior, I honestly believe this story provides an incredible insight to what our warriors and chiefs faced throughout history. Your writing offered a perspective bigger than me and more intricate than I have seen in writing, fiction or non-fiction, from the list of books I have read.
Thank you for taking this historical event and creating a story that is respectful, insightful and powerful without being cliché or stereotypical. I enjoyed my journey through this book and I wanted to thank you for your writing. Thank you for your art!
