Powers situates the critical battles won by Crazy Horse within the context of the decades-long conflict between Indian tribes and U.S. Army forces commonly called the Great Sioux Wars. He explores the complicated relationship between the tribes - in particular, Crazy Horse's Lakota Sioux - and the federal authorities. And he makes clear why the few battles won by the Indians - regardless of the fear they left in their wake - did not ultimately help them to stem the tide of settlers, gold seekers, and buffalo hunters that flooded the Great Plains after the Civil War.

The narrator does a poor job and rarely even varies his inflections. To me the book seemed very unfocused, jumping around from character to character and not telling me anything I really wanted to know. I gave up after listening for an hour. I wish I could get my credit back.
