On June 25, 1876, 611 men of the Seventh Cavalry of the United States rode to the shores of the Little Maroon where three thousand Indians were waiting for battle.
The lives of two great leaders of the war would soon be united forever:
Crazy Horse, leader of the Oglala Sioux, and General George Armstrong Custer.
This masterful double biography tells the epic story of these two men's lives: both were fighters of legendary audacity, both became honest leaders in their societies when they were still surprisingly young, and both died when they were near the highest political heights.
However, they - like the nations they represented - were as different as day and night.
Custer had earned his spurs in the American Civil War; his motto was "To promotion - or death" and his restless ambition characterized a white nation in search of expansion and progress.
Crazy Horse fought for a nomadic and fast way of life against the buffalo hunters and the incursions of the white man.
The Great Plains of North America provided the setting and the award.
