    Eleven-year-old Jimmy McClean lives on the Rosebud Sioux Indian Reservation in South Dakota. Unfortunately, though he is three-quarters Lakota and only one-quarter white, he has light brown hair and blue eyes for which he is mercilessly teased at school by two bullies. His life changes, however, when his grandfather, Nyles High Eagle, takes him on a visionary journey in which they visit sites important to the life of the great Indian leader Crazy Horse. At each stop, Grandfather brings history to dramatic life with his stories, and, in time, Jimmy learns much about his heritage and the meaning of courage. Though in an author's note, Marshall—who himself grew up on the Rosebud Reservation and is an enrolled member of the Sicangu Lakota tribe—claims not to be an expert on Crazy Horse, he writes with insight and authority. His book is a welcome addition to the slender body of work about Native Americans written from within their culture. Copyright 2014 Booklist Reviews.
