Praise for The Journey of Crazy Horse. A fine and necessary work. Born about one hundred years after Crazy Horse, Joseph Marshall has drawn on oral histories passed down across the generations to find the human being behind the hero who has become a legend for Lakotas and non-Indians alike. The result is a remarkable portrait of a remarkable man. -Colin G. Calloway, professor of history and Samson Occom Professor of Native American Studies, Dartmouth College. This story of treachery and honor has never been told better.

By Joseph M. Marshall II. Publisher: Penguin Group (USA) Incorporated, September 2005. MY HERO recommends this book to adult readers. Historian Marshall brings a Lakota perspective to his biography of Crazy Horse, a biography that seeks to show him as a "Lakota person shaped by his environment, the times he lived in, and the culture that nurtured him. He develops Crazy Horse's biography "as a story-teller would" and intersperses his narrative with interpretive essays that expand upon aspects of the wider historical setting.

What makes this book so important is that it is based on the oral history pasted down through the generations. But what makes it so readable is the author’s style of telling the story himself. The man that emerges from this history is a humble leader that is chosen to serve the people. Along the way we learn and gain a deep respect for the Lakota way of living in harmony with the land and in community. Our generation desperately needs leaders and the respect for the Earth that is shown here in the man called Crazy Horse.

I won't tell you about the story or the skirmishes. I won't describe to you the life depicted so completely by Mr. Marshall that you are transported through time. I will tell you I could not stop reading this wonderfully epic and colorful book about the fall of a great warrior race. I will tell you that, if you are at all interested in the Native American Plains life and lifestyle, this is an amazing book! You will find out what defeated the strength of the many branches of the Sioux nation-themselves! You will walk with Light Hair, who eventually takes his father's name and the mantle of leader and his vision of the powerful Thunder Beings and finally becomes the powerful and intelligent Crazy Horse-the people's warrior.
Take the reins with him as he flies across the plains, that were so very much more to this great people than it will ever be to us. Take the reins and find out for yourself....

This was such an interesting and comprehensive story told by a native American who grew up hearing stories from his grandparents of Crazy Horse. As he grew older he researched for the truth and found it was somewhere in between. The author tells this amazing warrior's story that reveals the human side of not only the Indian culture and their heroes but depicts the character of Crazy Horse. He had a gift of seeing ahead that was a blessing and a curse. Read this if you have a love of Western history. Diamondgirl

WOW! . Crazy Horse as an anti-establishment founding father has been ignored. Books like this have helped to me understand just how deeply I was indoctrinated into slavery thru the public school system and the entertainment media. I have spent hours thinking about the implications of a life lived the way Crazy Horse lived it.

It's no wonder Crazy Horse is'nt talked about much, he's a reaaallly bad example for men to follow....when you're trying to make men into sheep. Thank you Joseph M. Marshall III

A good, well-written account of a remarkable man, Crazy Horse. He was a true American hero whose morals, Ideals and character - his life - should be an example and inspiration for generations of young Americans. The Force was strong with this one.

There is not much hard evidence of the exploits or everyday life of Crazy Horse and his people so we are left with mainly oral history handed down from generations past from those that either knew him, witnessed his exploits or were familiar with those who did. In addition, any history or biography of an American Indian requires of the writer a pretty good understanding of Native American spirituality, something that is foundational to Indians. Mr. Marshall seems to get this.

Mr. Marshall managed to give a convincing history without pretension or hero worship and leaving open some things that, well, just have to be left open.

Crazy Horse has completely fascinated me for many years, as I have always had a very keen interest in the American West and the native American tribes, particularly those that lived in the western plains, and in the south-west, like the Apaches.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book- I found it very poetic and written by someone with an obvious knowledge of his chosen subject.
I also found it quite sad and moving in what the white man did to the tribes in their never ending pursuit of land and gold.
Crazy Horse will always remain a fascinating leader of his people to me and can only be admired for his never ending brave efforts in his endeavors to protect both his people and their sacred and much loved lands .
Well done.

This was a well written narrative about the salient events in the life of Crazy Horse as seen by his tribe and preserved in the oral tradition..There was no attempt to heap scorn on present day caucasians for the actions of our ancestors despite their oft barbaric actions,instead the actions were described in the context of the moral code of each combatant.The chilling betrayal of Crazy Horse by his own people is another reminder of how ruthless power struggles get the closer you are to the top.
The Journey of Crazy “T Horse” by Joseph M. Marshall III

This is the most eloquent expression of the essence of Lakota that I have ever read. Marshall is well known for his connection with his Lakota ancestors and just as well known for his abundant talent as a writer and story-teller. In this book he shows the reader the nature of the Lakota by telling the journey of Crazy Horse – the most Lakota of all the Lakotas. And that is exactly what it is; a Journey and I earnestly recommend that you take it.

Marshall makes a very important point. Our “heroes” of all stripes were people whose heroism, like Crazy Horse’s, really came from who they were everyday – not just the few days they were in the national limelight. And it is in those parts of those personal journeys that we can find the dignity and strength and soul of a people who understood that the Land is our Grandmother.
