Jimmy McClean is a Lakota boy -- though you wouldn't guess it by his name: his father is part white and part Lakota, and his mother is Lakota. When he embarks on a journey with his grandfather, Nyles High Eagle, he learns more and more about his Lakota heritage -- in particular, the story of Crazy Horse, one of the most important figures in Lakota and American history.
