Guest: Mark Lee Gardner
Sunday, July 31, 2022
This Week on History Happy Hour: A fascinating close-up look at Crazy Horse and Sitting Bull, the two most legendary and consequential American Indian leaders. They triumphed at the Battle of Little Bighorn and led Sioux resistance in the fierce final chapter of the "Indian Wars."
Our guest is Mark Lee Gardner, author of The Earth Is All That Lasts: Crazy Horse, Sitting Bull and the Last Stand of the Great Sioux Nation. The Wall Street Journal calls it “fast paced highly absorbing," and we hope our interview will be as well.
