Many legends have arisen around the figure of the Lakota warrior, Crazy Horse, in the non-Indian world. 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.

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.
