Crazy Horse Book by Dave Wooten Now Available at Local Bookstores
141 years ago today, the Lakota war chief Crazy Horse was killed at Camp Robinson, Nebraska. On September 5, 1877, the Lakota leader's life was ended by a soldier's bayonet as he resisted being taken to the post guardhouse (see picture below).
Dave Wooten from the XL Morning Show has authored a new book about this event and the last days of Crazy Horse's life. Crazy Horse: Where My Dead Lie Buried is now available at the Country Bookshelf in downtown Bozeman, and also at the Used Book Emporium on Huffine next to Cold Smoke Coffeehouse.
Crazy Horse: Where My Dead Lie Buried follows the Oglala Lakota leader Crazy Horse from the Battle of the Little Bighorn in June 1876 until his death just over a year later at Camp Robinson, Nebraska. During this time, Crazy Horse battles the U.S. Army, his wife's sickness, and even his own people. It is an odyssey of sorrow, struggle, and courage for the man the Lakota Indians still consider their greatest warrior ever.
