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 Horseis 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.

The Journey of Crazy Horse brings to life both the person and the legend that Crazy Horse was. Proving previous myths false it accounts through oral histories the life of Crazy Horse. Joseph Marshall is an exemplary author who has written various great tittles but this has got to be my all time favorite. Having read a good quantity of stories and biography's regarding Crazy Horse I am quite certain about the accuracy of this book. It does in fact leave a lot out but nothing that you could easily find in another book about Crazy Horse.
