Crazy Horse Book Signing

Crazy Horse book coverCrazy Horse family members Floyd Clown and Doug War Eagle join author William Matson to discuss and sign their book Crazy Horse: The Lakota Warrior’s Life and Legacy on July 21 from 2:00 to 4:30 PM at the Belgrade Community Library.

The Crazy Horse family’s oral history has not been told outside the family for over a century. Now it has been put into print for everyone to read as told by Clown, War Eagle, and Don Red Thunder, who are the son and grandsons of Edward Clown, a nephew to Crazy Horse, and the keeper of the sacred bundle and pipe for the family after his mother, Iron Cedar, passed away.

Their book includes new information on one of Montana’s most famous events, the battle of the Little Bighorn including who killed Custer, how he was killed, and what happened to his missing index finger.

Clown, War Eagle, and Red Thunder currently live in Dupree, SD on the Cheyenne River Reservation. Matson, a documentary film maker, currently resides in Spearfish, SD. This is Matson’s first book.
