High on a remote butte, a young Sioux waits. Though daring in battle, skillful, and strong, he cannot be a man until his spiritual vision comes. When it appears, he must interpret it correctly to know who he is, and he must deserve it or continue to be called No Name.

No Name has his vision, a glowing white mare who walks among the stars. She tells No Name his destiny and how to achieve it. He must pass through hostile camps, storm, and fire, risking his life many times to become Conquering Horse, chief of the Sioux.


Conquering Horse is the first of Frederick Manfred’s five-volume series, The Buckskin Man Tales.

Frederick Manfred (1912–94) grew up on a farm in Iowa with six brothers, attended Calvin College in Michigan, and then hitchhiked for two years across America, which provided him with rich materials for his writing. His twenty-five novels include the five-volume series The Buckskin Man Tales, of which Lord Grizzly and Scarlet Plume are also available in Bison Books editions. Manfred also published volumes of poetry, short stories, and essays. Delbert E. Wylder (1923–2004) was one of the founding members of the Western Literature Association and is the author of Popular Westerns and Emerson Hough. Charles L. Woodard is a distinguished professor of English at South Dakota State University and the author of Peril and Promise: Essays on Community in South Dakota and Beyond.

“Mr. Manfred’s novel carries the feel of open country, of grass and wind, sun and rain, moonlight and starlight. . . . It is harshly real.”—New York Herald Tribune

“Manfred has woven a wondrously complex story of a young Sioux warrior’s search for the inner core of manhood’s dignity—the ability to live with oneself.”—San Francisco Chronicle
 

“Here is Indian lore, humor, customs, daily life, religion, identification with nature—and superb endurance in full detail, color, and understanding. Strenuous—and satisfying.”—Kirkus Reviews
 
 

“His narrative has in it both the kick of actual life and the power of vision. . . . A fine and attractive story.”—New York Times
