Journey of Crazy Horse, the by Joseph M Marshall
Book DescriptionDrawing on vivid oral histories, Joseph M. Marshall s intimate biography introduces a never-before-seen portrait of Crazy Horse and his Lakota community 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 M. Marshall, himself a Lakota Indian, creates a vibrant portrait of the man, his times, and his legacy.Thanks to 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."
