The Journey of Crazy Horse: A Lakota History

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Joseph Marshall

Narrated By: Joseph Marshall

Date: October 2004

Duration: 10 hours 59 minutes

Summary:

Most of the world remembers Crazy Horse as a peerless warrior who brought the U.S. Army to its knees at the Battle of Little Bighorn. But to his fellow Lakota Indians, he was a dutiful son and humble fighting man who-with valor, spirit, respect, and unparalleled leadership-fought for his people's land, livelihood, and honor. In this fascinating biography, Joseph M. Marshall, himself a Lakota Indian, creates a vibrant portrait of the man, his times, and his legacy.

Thanks to firsthand research and his culture's rich oral tradition (rarely shared outside the Native American community), Marshall reveals many aspects of Crazy Horse's life, including details of the powerful vision that convinced him of his duty to help preserve the Lakota homeland-a vision that changed the course of Crazy Horse's life and spurred him confidently into battle time and time again.

The Journey of Crazy Horse is the true story of how one man's fight for his people's survival roused his true genius as a strategist, commander, and trusted leader. And it is an unforgettable portrayal of a revered human being and a profound celebration of a culture, a community, and an enduring way of life.

    This biography of Crazy Horse made me stop and think about how wrong our education system is. The real information about the life of the Native Americans and how badly our country treated them is obscured. It's a national disgrace that no one really talks about.

    Excellent book. It is deeply researched, well written and brought to life characters more mythological than understood. I enjoyed the reflections that provided important insight into the culture and life philosophy of the Lakota. A rewarding read, enjoyable and enlightening.
