    "Good Story But Too Much Detail"

    Very interesting story on a matter that I had not previously heard of, but the book dives into way too much detail on minor points that might be important in a court case, but are not needed for the story or to believe the veracity of the author. Not only does the author state his bias, but it is clear from the start. I have hit the fast forward button several times and was amazed that it left no gaps in my understanding even though I zoomed through a good hour of audio at a time.

    "In the Spirit of Crazy Horse"

    A good story but hard to follow. When the narrator tries to sound like an Indian, it's a little creepy.

    "Good story"
    Would you listen to In the Spirit of Crazy Horse again? Why?

    Yes. It's a compelling history of government abuse of power


    What does Mark Bramhall bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Local feel of desolation and the rough hewn life.

    "A complete waste of time"

    What a bunch of liberal apologist drivel! Can't believe I have wasted the time and money on this book. Nearly halfway through and should have stopped hours ago.
