At first, I wasn't sure I was going to enjoy listening to the author read this book. The author's voice is slow, but as I listened, it came to feel like the rhythm of an oral tradition storytelling. The author's personal connection to the story as a Lakota himself and his access to oral stories about Crazy Horse made this a very interesting description not only of Crazy Horse but also of the Lakota people of the late 1800s. I very much enjoyed hearing about the social traditions and the daily lives of these people who were so badly mistreated by the conquering whites.
