    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 Marshall, himself a Lakota Indian, creates a vibrant portrait of the man, his times, and his legacy.

    "Fantastic story and narration"
    Overall

    This is a great audio book. It challenged my ideas of leadership and history. There will never be another Crazy Horse, but we can all learn something from his story. I find the narration greatly enhanced the listening experience. I listened to the start of this on a 6 hour drive and when I reached my destination I sat in the parking lot for another hour because I just couldn't stop listening. I'll read (or hopefully) listen to anything else Mr. Marshall shares with us!

    Story

    In 1743, a ship carrying 14 Russian sailors was headed for whaling grounds near Norway when a violent storm blew it far off course, where the ship froze into the ice. Some of the sailors remembered that other sailors had erected a hut on a nearby island and spent the winter there. Four sailors volunteered to go ashore to look for the hut in hopes of finding supplies or using it as a refuge should the 14 sailors be forced to spend the winter before the summer thaw could free their ship.

    Anne says: "Not about the four"
    "Great story!"
    Overall

    This is a fantastic story. In contrast with other reviews, I enjoyed hearing about the authors stuggles to gather the information about what actually happened all those years ago. But at the same time, I can understand how some might find these parts less interesting than the orginal adventure. I just thought it was a nice balance. My only complaint was that there were times some of the background got a bit too detailed. Still a great listen!
