Publisher's Summary

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.

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.

What the Critics Say

"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)

    Story
    "100% worth the Purchase"

    I loved the Author's storytelling style. His voice is the story of Crazy Horse in my mind. This telling provides an incredible amount of history that I had never heard told from this perspective of both the Era of time in which he lived but especially how they lived. the break down and cinematic telling of the life changing vision of "His Horse is Crazy" and the reiteration of it at the pinnacle of the story was worth listening to over and over.

    Story
    "The Life Experiences that created Sitting Bull"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    The Indian history of who Sitting Bull was is vastly different than the white man's story. Sitting Bull was a very moral and courageous man. His bravery as a young man entitled him to many followers. His reputation for courage and insightfulness brought the tribes together when their very existence was threatened


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Learning about Sitting Bulls life was interesting. It helped to see the true spirit of the great man. The least interesting were all the chapters spent repeating his exploits over again. It was rather choppy and did not flow as easily as "The Lakota Way".

    Story
    "Compelling!!!"
    Where does The Journey of Crazy Horse rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I'm new to audio books but this has held my attention in a way like no other. Marshall's insight to the man who was Crazy Horse painted a picture unlike any other I have read on this American Legend.

    Story
    "The man Crazy Horse"

    This was the absolute best work on the life of Crazy Horse. I've read them all. This is the best! Migwetch, Joseph Marshall III for this great gift to us all! I am not Lakota. I am Anishinaabe. I truly appreciate your telling us the real story of the man.

    Story
    "From the horses mouth"

    I enjoyed getting an Indian perspective, and one that is about as close to a first hand account as one could get today, Marshall did an outstanding job in details and coloring in with knowledge parts of Indian life and how crazy horse would have developed, he has done the world a service by codifying Indian life with all the political tribal struggles,

    "This was a story of a noble man."

    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.
