Drawing on vivid oral histories, Joseph M. Marshall’s intimate biography introduces a never-before-seen portrait of Crazy Horse and his Lakota community 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 M. Marshall, himself a Lakota Indian, creates a vibrant portrait of the man, his times, and his legacy. Thanks to 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 Horse is 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. "Those wishing to understand Crazy Horse as the Lakota know him won't find a better accout than Marshall's." -San Francisco Chronicle

Im bitterkalten Winter des Jahres 814 bringt die heidnische Frau des Dorfpriesters ein Mädchen zur Welt: Johanna. Sie wächst in einer Welt düsteren Aberglaubens auf, gegen den ihr Vater grausam zu Felde zieht. Er läßt sogar die Hebamme des Ortes als Hexe verfolgen. Ein Mensch erkennt bei Johanna besondere Gaben: Aeskulapius, der Pädagoge aus dem fernen Byzanz, weist sie als einziges Mädchen in die Lehren der Philosophie und Logik ein. Doch beinahe wird Johanna ihr Wissensdurst zum Verhängnis. Nur der Ritter Gerold, ihr Freund und späterer Liebhaber, vermag sie vor dem grausamen Magister Odo zu bewahren. Nach einem verheerenden Feldzug der Normannen weiß sie endgültig: Frauen wie sie überleben in dieser Welt nicht. So geht sie als Mönch verkleidet ins Kloster Fulda. Als Medicus betritt sie Jahre später Rom, die Stadt des Papstes - wo die Wechselfälle des Schicksals sie schließlich selbst auf den heiligen Stuhl bringen.

Jimmy McClean is a Lakota boy—though you wouldn’t guess it by his name: his father is part white and part Lakota, and his mother is Lakota. When he embarks on a journey with his grandfather, Nyles High Eagle, he learns more and more about his Lakota heritage—in particular, the story of Crazy Horse, one of the most important figures in Lakota and American history. Drawing references and inspiration from the oral stories of the Lakota tradition, celebrated author Joseph Marshall III juxtaposes the contemporary story of Jimmy with an insider’s perspective on the life of Tasunke Witko, better known as Crazy Horse (c. 1840–1877). The book follows the heroic deeds of the Lakota leader who took up arms against the US federal government to fight against encroachments on the territories and way of life of the Lakota people, including leading a war party to victory at the Battle of the Little Bighorn. Along with Sitting Bull, Crazy Horse was the last of the Lakota to surrender his people to the US army. Through his grandfather’s tales about the famous warrior, Jimmy learns more about his Lakota heritage and, ultimately, himself. American Indian Youth Literature Award
