Best book written about crazy horse.

I have read everything I could get my hands on about crazy horse. This book has the most detail about the daily life of the Sioux tribe. It is excellent. Most of the books are all the same over and over. This one has much more information and details about the day-to-day life of the Indians. Very informative. I learned so much from this book!

Stone song

This book was very interesting to read. I spent hours reading it and a lot more hours contemplating it. This book was enjoyable and it pushed you to understand what the Lakota endured.

Rich in history and culture

This vividly imagined biographical novel is rich in historical and cultural detail. Although long and occasionally redundant, it was definitely a worthwhile investment of time. I felt the narration was a bit too breathless and theatrical but the prounuciation of native words was confident and seemed authentic.

well told story

I really appreciated the fact the the reader at least sounded like he knew how to pronunce the language. The atory was well told. The only thing i scratch my head about is the Crazy horse was fair akinned and light haired but in the picturues he always has dark hair - so I’m wondering if this is creative license? or actual fact. overall great story

Truly memorable.

It's a long book, and I wondered at times if I would finish it. This book, like life, requires patience through the uncertainty. I'm so glad I gave myself the space to keep reading, and to savor the sensitive telling of this remarkable story. I switched back and forth between print and audible versions, as I greatly appreciated both versions. Highly recommend.

Very well done history

I myself am Lakota and I really enjoyed listening to this book. I believe though a history the author took fictional license with the relationship between Black Buffalo and Crazy Horse. No proud proper Lakota women would have had a sexual relation outside of marriage without being shunned by the tribe back in the day. #tagsgiving #sweepstakes
