Drawing on 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.

"A vivid, haunting biography that acknowledges the author's boyhood hero worship but avoids hagiography....This book adds spirit and life to our understanding of this enigmatic and important man." (Publishers Weekly)
"Marshall does a good job of bringing Crazy Horse to life by examining all his milestones....A highly readable, as-accurate-as-the-record-allows study of the nineteenth-century's best-known Lakota chief." (Booklist)
I'm retired....I love to walk, bike and "read" interesting stories.... I love discussing literature...
This was an excellent story of a noble man. It also tells about the struggle of the Native American people to keep their way of life. This book was very worthwhile.
I started this book wanting to know what Crazy Horse was like and by the end of the book I feel like I have been shown more about the Lakota and their culture than I could have ever dreamed. The author is so insightful and so honest about everything including the shortcomings of Crazy Horse. The author's desire to paint the picture of Crazy Horse the human being helps the reader understand so much more about the Lakota people. I recommend this to everyone! I'm bless to have read this. Thank you.
Yes, just like a good movie, you watch it again to see the things you missed because your so engrossed in it.
He narrated it perfectly, made you feel as if your there
No, but I plan to.
Was a great audible book, perfectly narrated, excellent story, well written. Couldn't wait to listen again
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.
