Author: William Kotzwinkle
Illustrator: Joe Servello

A passionate tribute to the great Sioux chief and to an artist's determination to carve a huge statue of the fearless warrior into the Black Hills.

In 1970, Joe Servello, whose ancestors were stonemasons, traveled to the Black Hills of South Dakota to see the gigantic portrait being carved in Thunderhead Mountain. So inspired was he by the story of Crazy Horse and Korczak Ziolkowski's seemingly impossible effort to create a mountain-size monument to the chief, he asked the sculptor for permission to illustrate a children's book about it. Servello took the sketches he made on the mountain to Kotzwinkle, who was equally inspired. The resulting book is a moving depiction of tragedy and redemption.
