This book was excellent in every way. The story, accuracy of history and the performance by the author were all executed with excellence.
Additionally, the perspective and wisdom that Marshall shares is almost as profound as the stories themselves.
I didn't want this book to end. It will stay with me forever.
I really enjoyed this book. The author has a great voice and relays the story very well. It's a great historical book on crazy horse. I knew nothing about the man. It's a sad story too. I highly recommend this book.
If understanding the way of native culture is of interest to you. Then this is a book for you. The story of Crazy Horse's life is an incredibly human story. And one I believe anyone looking for a strong and real human to look to should know this story. Thank you Joseph Marshall.
Enjoyed this story very much. An original American. A brave warrior and leader. Definitely inspired others to defend their lands and way of life.
Very entertaining and informational, an excellent history of the nation that was in North America before we "dicovered" it. We can never lose this part of our history.
riveting, personal, spiritual
nothing for this specific topic and oral history
question doesn't make sense for this story telling by there author
not possible, but I finished it very quickly
This oral history jives well with various 'scholarly' histories of the events and times. But is delves much deeper into the Lakota perspective on the times.
The use of Lakota words that I would struggle with and familiarity with concepts made this feel natural and right, bringing me into the narrative more and allowing me to see behind the character's eyes.
The author provides a disclaimer that Crazy Horse is part of a hero story, but also a part of history. He treats the topic very well, giving all points of view and elevates the character by distilling the real man out of the legend and history books. I would highly recommend this to any fan of historical book.
