Black Robe Woman, Lakota Warrior:Being the Second Part of the Crazy Horse Chronicles (Crazy Horse Chronicles Trilogy) (Crazy Horse Chronicles, 2) [Hardcover]

Richard Jepperson (Author), Ken Mundie (Illustrator), Robert A. Clark (Foreword)

Open the creaking lid of a rusty-hinged old trunk and look inside to find a dusty frontier sketchbook. Blow away the dust and lift the cover to the first of the pages of time. As the image fills your eyes a voice fills your mind and a heart-wrenching story unfolds in vivid sketches and words as told by Crazy Horse. The first book of the Crazy Horse Chronicles Trilogy, The War of the Mormon Cow introduced the boy called Curly, who becomes Crazy Horse, and the girl called Little Mouse, who becomes Black Robe Woman. In Black Robe Woman, Lakota Warrior our story continues as Crazy Horse looks back to the time just after The War of the Mormon Cow. Black Robe Woman, Lakota Warrior is the second book of The Crazy Horse Chronicles Trilogy. Just one year after The War of the Mormon Cow Curly and Little Mouse are again caught up in the horrors of war as General Harney leads an overwhelming force, to "chastise the Indian." Through luck and heroic venture our heroes survive and grow to maturity against the backdrop of conflicts history dubs the "Indian Wars." Curly becomes Crazy Horse and Little Mouse becomes Black Robe Woman. Crazy Horse earns his name through glory in battle. Black Robe Woman takes her name as a symbol of heartbreak and suffering. She was a real person, as was Crazy Horse, and they were very much in love throughout their lives. It was destined to be a star-crossed love for they were faced with jealousies of clans and families and the struggle for prestige and power. Whether found in Shakespearean tragedy or Lakota villages, youthful love often suffers and falters under the rigors of societal pressures.
