Journey of Crazy Horse: A Lakota History
Journey of Crazy Horse: A Lakota History | Joseph M Marshall
Drawing on vivid oral histories, Joseph M. Marshall's intimate biography introduces a never-before-seen portrait of Crazy Horse and his Lakota communityMost 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. "Those wishing to understand Crazy Horse as the Lakota know him won't find a better accout than Marshall's." -San Francisco Chronicle

I chose this one for #readthestates #NorthDakota, and I‘m really glad I did.

The audio is read by the author, which was perfect. It‘s a historical account of Crazy Horse‘s life as passed down orally through traditional stories of his people. Marshall tells of the old ways of the Lakota and Dakota and how things changed as the first white people appeared, right through when the last of the land was taken from the indigenous tribes. Amazing book!

Addison_Reads Great review! I can't wait to read this now. 1y
