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.

Born in Iowa, Manfred has lived much of his life in southern Minnesota. Most of his novels are set in southern Minnesota and the Dakotas, and his Native American characters are usually Sioux. A fine storyteller, Manfred does extensive historical research, which gives his books a sense of authenticity. He is also interested in psychology and human sexuality, and many of his books have Freudian or Jungian overtones. Manfred often focuses on the importance of the land in shaping his characters: frequently in his books, a man must test himself against the wilderness in order to discover his true nature.
