If you could sum up Crazy Horse and Custer in three words, what would they be?
Cultural Perspectives of Freedom
What did you like best about this story?
The efforts to humanize both men, particularly Crazy Horse. It's easy to think of these legendary figures as outsized caricatures of themselves, but we get a deeper view of both.
What does Richard Ferrone bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
He does well with individualizing voices, without going over the top, which happens all too often in this kind of audiobook.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
I have no idea, but I'd like to have seen what Peckinpah could have done with it.
Any additional comments?
The themes of prestige and shame presented in both men, are easily extrapolated to represent their respective cultures.

This is one of if not the best told history of native Americans I️ have read. The descriptions of Indian culture and comparison to white American culture is stunning. It is so well told I️ couldn’t stop reading. There were also interesting minor details I️ had not read about previously. If you are interested in Native American history, this is a must read.
