For perhaps the first time, we have a native American speaking about one of histories most famous persons. The author vividly, recreates the true man and leader behind the myth, that is Crazy Horse. It is without doubt the best book i have ever read on the subject, it covers the whole of the life style, beliefs, reasons and aims for the taking up of arms against the Angloamericans. Truly an eye opener, and more importantly, a reason why these wars happened. I recommend this book to anyone who really wants to know the real reasons behind the savage indian wars of the 19th century. A book that will stand the test of time and, from a Native American who is open and frank about the subject.

Format: Paperback
I have read many books concerning the plight and lives of the Native Amercans in particular my focus has and is the Lakota and the tribes/families that are Lakota.

I have found this book to be a most enlightening portrayal of a leader who was extremely wary of the invaders, so much so that it is said he allowed no photograph to be taken of him, and when he was killed, his body was taken to a secret burial place to be remembered and honoured by the ancestors of those who buried him, Tasunke Witko.

Whilst no amount of writing will ever put right the wrongs that took place during the four hundred year invasion of what is now America, perhaps some lessons can be learnt from books such as this.

A great deal of this book has been taken from memories handed down orally, which was the way of the Lakota and of all the other tribes, those that survive and those that were wiped out forever, of 'America'; a way that was dismissed as unimportant by the invaders. However, it comes across as being an authentic insight.

This is a book offering a valuable description of a way of life now lost to our world perhaps forever, a way that we should respect and mourn for the loss of something that can never be replaced.

Format: Paperback
At the beginning, Marshall states that written accounts of the actions, character and even appearance of Crazy Horse are scant. Indeed, the only well documented episode of his life is his death. However, Marshall still manages to weave an extremely effective and gripping narrative which is -- for the most part beautifully and empathetically written to highlight who Crazy Horse was and why he acted as he did. Even though there is not much testimony to work with, Marshall manages to create a three-dimensional picture of a taciturn loner who loved much and tried his best to do right by his people, only to be corralled and killed for being too much of a free thinker. I learned a lot about the Indian culture as well as the man reading this volume which was most enjoyable and I recommend it highly to academics and biography readers alike.

For the serious student of the American Indian it is, in my opinion, a "must have" book.

The story of the life of arguabley the greatest Lakota Sioux indian whoever lived, and the inevitable end of his life,murdered by the whites.

It is beautifully written, with an understanding, I guess, that only another Lakota Sioux, hearing the history from his own ancestors could really appreciate.

Having read this book I feel now that I understand Crazy Horse a great deal better than previously.

Joseph Marshall has produced a real winner.
