Publisher's Summary

The Battle of Little Bighorn in Montana in 1876 has become known as the quintessential clash of cultures between the Lakota Sioux and whites. The men who led the battle, Crazy Horse, Sitting Bull, and Colonel George A. Custer, have become the stuff of legends. Here, award-winning Lakota historian Joseph M. Marshall III reveals the nuanced complexities that led up to and followed the battle. Until now, this account has been available only within the Lakota oral tradition. The Day the World Ended at Little Bighorn is required listening for anyone enthralled by the tale of the encounter that changed the scope of both America and the American landscape.

Critic Reviews

"Marshall offers a thoughtful and enlightening alternative look at this iconic chapter in American history." (Booklist)
"Marshall's thoughtful reflections and rich detail (much of it drawn from the oral stories of unidentified Lakota elders)...immerse the reader in the experience of a once free people wrestling with an uncertain destiny." (Publishers Weekly)

Little Big Horn viewed from the other side

The author, who is also the reader, makes this a story told among family and friends. I have "read" audio books for years but this was a totally different experience. The story is told not read - and there is a difference. It reminded me of sitting with my grandparents as they talked about the "old days". Along with the actual battle you learn about the Plains Indians, their way of life, their great chiefs, why the tribes were gathered at that place and time, family life, and much more. This is a wonderful piece of history told from the other side.

Greasy Grass Battle

I have read this book and listened to it. I feel the author was very meticulous in his research. He was fair to both sides of the story: the Native side, the Immigrants side.

I felt as I was reading I was there. As the story moved into the battle itself and the aftermath I felt the exaustion of those involved. Those who tried to come to the aid of Custer and his men and could not. I felt the sadness/joy of those who claimed victory defending their people and their lands.

One day I hope to visit the battle grounds and leave a tobacco offering for the Native warriors who gave their lives there. I too am Native to this Continent as are all my ancestors.
This is by far the best book I have ever read covering this battle and those involved

An Amazing Listen

Where does The Day the World Ended at Little Big Horn rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Ranked at the top of the books I've listened to so far. I've a few favorite authors all of which write great books and have been acknowledged for such. But for sure this is sitting at the top now.

What other book might you compare The Day the World Ended at Little Big Horn to, and why?

No comparison to anything yet as most of the stories I've read to date have been from the invaders side.

What does Joseph M. Marshall III bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

His amazing accent, diction and pronunciation of his language place an unmistakable experience to absorbing this whole book. The love of his people, the sadness of the events and the pride Joseph M Marshall III adds allows you to almost place yourself inside the story.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes

Any additional comments?

I will purchase everything I can from Joseph M Marshall III. What a great unbiased approach to continuing to educate many of us of the othersides events. I would love to say that Joseph M Marshall III is a true warrior and that as proud as he is of all the great people he educates us of they would be equally proud of his ongoing work/battles. An absolute fan, Thank you.
