    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.

    Story

    I felt moved by this book. Don't know how much is historically correct and I don't think that it matters. I felt as if I was there. It is not a fun book. It is about a great man who in his time had the strength and purpose to continually fight against overwhelming odds. If I was Euro American I would have a sense of shame.

    Reading is one tone but I thought effective. Some special effects of thunder were great.

    A great book.

  • A Brief Guide to Celtic Myths and Legends: Brief Histories

    A very accessable guide that fills the gap between academic analysis and less-critical retellings of the myths and legends. Marytn Whittock provides an accessible overview while also assessing the current state of research regarding the origins and significance of the myths. Since all records of the myths first occur in the early medieval period, the focus is on the survival of pre-Christian mythology and the interactions of the early Christian writers with these myths.

    Story

    I have been listening to Audible books for a long time and never reviewed before. I am only breaking the habit to warn anyone thinking of buying this book. This is an out and out academic book with a strong authors opinion from the beginning about the non existence of Celts with warning after warning not to assume that Celts ever existed as we understand them. One warning would have been enough and then maybe some of the subject mentioned in the title would have been nice. I just could not get through the first chapter. Terrible.

    One of Jane Austen's most popular novels. Arrogant, self-willed, and egotistical, Emma is her most unusual heroine.

    Story

    The narration is simply wonderful. Juliet Stevenson made this story come alive. At times I was laughing with tears running down my face. I have hundreds of audible books now but this is up there with the best.
