Product Description
The latest installment of the multimillion-selling Killing series is a gripping journey through the American West and the historic clashes between Native Americans and settlers.

The bloody Battle of Tippecanoe was only the beginning. It's 1811 and President James Madison has ordered the destruction of Shawnee warrior chief Tecumseh's alliance of tribes in the Great Lakes region. But while General William Henry Harrison would win this fight, the armed conflict between Native Americans and the newly formed United States would rage on for decades.

Bestselling authors Bill O'Reilly and Martin Dugard venture through the fraught history of our country's founding on already occupied lands, from General Andrew Jackson's brutal battles with the Creek Nation to President James Monroe's epic "sea to shining sea" policy, to President Martin Van Buren's cruel enforcement of a "treaty" that forced the Cherokee Nation out of their homelands along what would be called the Trail of Tears. O'Reilly and Dugard take readers behind the legends to reveal never-before-told historical moments in the fascinating creation story of America.

This fast-paced, wild ride through the American frontier will shock readers and impart unexpected lessons that reverberate to this day.

"Killing Crazy Horse" is a thorough, detailed account of the history of Native Americans (Indians) in the United States. It points out there were many Indian tribes, often differing in culture and attitude toward outsiders significantly. Some tribes were friendly with some tribes in their area, enemies with others. Typically food and water in general, hunting grounds, and competition for horses and such were the cause of hostilities with other tribes or American settlers. In war Indians often took women and children captives as slaves. They also often killed adult males of their enemies without mercy. American settlers, gold/silver miners, and soldiers detailed to protect them or make war with Indians on their behalf were often barbaric themselves, extremely greedy, and very hateful against Indians. The drive West by Americans for those reasons was relentless and not very observant of treaties, promises, and decent treatment of Indians. The book traces the march of Americans westward vividly and in detail. The truth, whether it be favorable to either side morally or not, is revealed. Much of the time America's relationships with Indians does not reflect its finer moments. Very interesting history!

Excellent. I have read many books and articles about the Indian Wars, but Killing Crazy Horse vividly takes you to a time that helped shape our nation in a way that is both entertaining and enlightening. In my opinion is one of the best Killing Books by Bill O'Reilly.

I have real & Loved all of your books, but Killing Crazy Horse stands out as exceptional. The depth and breadth, from the early days of Spanish settlers through the western expansion of the U.S. encompasses the treaties and dealings with many of the tribes. It was very informative as to how many of the bands of Natives joined together to form tribes and how they got their names, as well as their original lands. While it goes into the deprivations (on both sides) it also explains how they lived before Europeans arrived. Looking into the lives and lifestyle of each of the major players and their role in the wars. Thank you for another well researched, easily readable and enjoyable book!
