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


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.

    I was caught up from the start by this very human story. Narrartion was spot on and I couldn't help but wonder what I would do in the same situation. I found this moving and inspirational and I want to learn more. I am very grateful to the author for this work and sharing this intamate story of his people and culture.

    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.

    Amazing story! I loved it. the narrator does an excellent job. He is also the writer.

    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.

    Awesome! Joseph M Marshall III is a great author and story teller, and to hear him narrate the book is an amazing thing. To know and learn more about Crazy Hourse and the Lakota people, and hear their point of view is priceless. I highly recomend this book!

    This book was an amazing history of a legendary figure in American History. Great information about the Lakota ways and the time of Crazy Horse.

    The author was a native american who researh brought the rich oral history to lite.

    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.
