Contains 13 Kindle pages, with 4 illustrations.excerpt -That spring [1876] I was camped on Powder River with fifty lodges of my people - Cheyennes. The place is near what is now Fort McKenney. One morning soldiers charged my camp. They were in command of Three Fingers [Colonel McKenzie]. We were surprised and scattered, leaving our ponies. The soldiers ran all our horses off. That night the soldiers slept, leaving the horses one side- so we crept up and stole them back again, and then we went away.We traveled far, and one day we met a big camp of Sioux at Charcoal Butte. We camped with the Sioux, and had a good time, plenty grass, plenty game, good water. Crazy Horse was head chief of the camp. Sitting Bull was camped a little ways below, on the Little Missouri River.Crazy Horse said to me, Im glad you are come. We are going to fight the white man again.The camp was already full of wounded men, women, and children.I said to Crazy Horse, All right. I am ready to fight. I have fought already. My people have been killed, my horses stolen- I am satisfied to fight.
