Overview

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.

The heart knows what is true. As I was finishing the book, I saw a documentary about an archiological team that surveyed the Little Bighorn sight for evidence. Then, I watched a Amazon movie entitled "Woman Walks Alone". I admit, white settlers and the new governemnt really screwed us for generations to come. Hoping we can one day find the balance again as was intended by our common creator. Excellent read and ditto the narrator.

I've always wanted to read the story of the Lakota tribe. I'm glad I'd waited until now. This book, and it's reading, were superbly done. You could feel the story as it was read. A "must listen" for anyone interested in native American history. Thank you.

Without a doubt, this is a must read for all Americans who have been fed the nonsense about the "savages" who inhabited North America. This is one of the most insightful, interesting account of the Indian culture and ways of living. This should be required reading in every history class.
