Publisher's Summary

Mention the name Crazy Horse, and many of us will remember a history lesson about a faceless Indian warrior who defeated General George Custer at the Battle of the Little Big Horn. But beyond this singular event, who was this man? And what teaching did he offer to all peoples of every nation? In Quiet Thunder: The Wisdom of Crazy Horse, Lakota lineage holder Joseph Marshall III presents the first audio-learning program based entirely on the rich oral tradition of his people to share a vibrant portrait painted with the brush of reality rather than the distortion of legend. With him, you will meet a compassionate but purposeful man driven by the empowering vision of a Thunder Dreamer, one who walked the path of giving as opposed to gaining, honor instead of ego, and leadership through leading, not authority. To fully appreciate the lessons of Crazy Horse, teaches Marshall, we must first get to know the place he came from. With captivating detail, he transports you to a time when the Lakota lived the nomadic lifestyle of their grandparents' grandparents, and immerses you in the culture and value system of his ancestors.

Any additional comments?

The book seems like the same story over and over only to a closed mind. One has to re-listen to understand the meaning of each passage of the story as an evolving lesson/journey. One can not understand the next progression without experiencing the mindfulness the previous chapter. The work is truly spiritual.. each person who listens will hear what spirit knows that individual needs in the moment. The same story will have new meaning to the listener as years go by and time goes on.

Somewhat limited, loose content

I am no expert on oral histories, so I admit I might just not be well suited to them. His style was a bit less well put together than I had hoped for. Certain stories were repeated in several of the sessions, usually more than once.

The stories themselves were told well, and he captured the life and wisdom of Crazy Horse fairly well, as far as I know (again, my own personal knowledge is limited, so this was more of a primer for me). Since the format is broken up into more than 6 separate lessons, I might have been better off spreading them out over a couple months. I sometimes listened to two or three at a time, which added to the weariness of some of the repetition.

All that said, I know I'm better equipped and better off for having listened to it! I plan to download some more of his books, even though I'm less a fan of his free-form teaching.
