In the great oral tradition of the Lakota people, author Joseph M. Marshall III shares the compelling history of a man, a tribe, and a legacy of courage and endurance.

Tasunke Witko, or Crazy Horse, as he is often remembered, brought the U.S. Army to its knees in 1876. His valor and leadership elevated him to legendary status among Native American people; in this riveting biography, Joseph Marshall (himself a Lakota Indian) combines firsthand research and a rich oral history to offer a fully-faceted portrait of the spirited warrior and revered hero, and a profound celebration of an enduring culture.

When Marshall was a child, his grandfather and great uncles would tell vivid tales of the Battle of Little Bighorn as if the decisive battle had happened only the day before; his research for this book included in-depth, lengthy conversations with elderly storytellers who describe details and perspectives that could only come from firsthand accounts.

    " Wonderful storytelling and great insight into the Lakota way of life and a very sad chapter in American history. "

    " This is a great biography and history of the Oglala Lakota. It was a great read as it was written in the oral tradition. It gave tremendous insight into the life of Crazy Horse that has been plagued with so much legend and hearsay. It helped to clear up some of the misconceptions and myths surrounding Crazy Horse. It also gave great insight into the life and world of the Lakota. "

    " I found this book to be very interesting. All I really knew about Crazy Horse was a stereo-typical character, only certain traits, then taken to an extreme. So learning more about the real person, how he struggled with and dealt with things made me admire him. I felt for the trials that he went through knowing how it would end up, but still wanted him to come out ahead anyway. "

    " Nice to see a American Indian perspective not a book tarnished by hate but written out of respect. at times it was a bit confusing, but over all I enjoed the the time spent. "
