Continuing my exploration of American History from the perspective of the country's original inhabitants for the AAC, I read this narrative of the family history of the man who defeated Custer, as told by three of his descendants who had the oral history passed down to them through several generations of their family. For many years, the members of Crazy Horse's family kept their relationship with him secret, because they feared retribution from the federal government, especially after Crazy Horse himself had been tricked into surrendering, and brutally murdered. This book is the result of their decision that the time was right to set the record straight, and to let the world know that Crazy Horse's family still lives. The narrative is rich with detail about the Lakota way of life, and the ways in which westward expansion by white men eroded the natural order of that existence. It also presents a vivid picture of a complex man whose primary motivation always was the safety and welfare of his family and his tribe. Floyd Clown, Doug War Eagle and Don Red Thunder told their family stories to William Matson, who is a documentary film maker and not a professional writer. It occasionally shows in some stylistic awkwardness, but for the most part the story-tellers' rhythm and flow seems to have been preserved on the page. Recommended. ( )

This history of the Lakota and the story of Crazy Horse as passed down through Oral History and presented to the author by Crazy Horse’s closest descendants. A very interesting book. It’s difficult to put down. So many historical events were witnessed by this family and are told from their perspective. It also tells the story of Crazy Horse’s descendants to the present which in many ways is just as interesting because until now it wasn’t known. A really good read. ( )

There are many biographies of Crazy Horse, but this one consists of his story from the oral history of his descendants.
According to them, they were forced into hiding after Crazy Horse's assassination, as the US government wanted to eliminate Crazy Horse's nearest relatives as they might become rallying points for further rebellion.
It's always and heartbreaking to hear history from the Native American perspective: broken treaties, outright lying to get Indians to give up their land, promises not kept, starvation and disease.
The last few chapters consist of genealogical information on the family and copies of documents. Apparently this story has been the focus of lawsuits for years as there is another branch of Lakota which claim they are the true descendants of Crazy Horse.
Intriguing, well written account that deserves a place in your library if you are interested in Native American history.

In Crazy Horse: The Lakota Warrior's Life & Legacy, the Edward Clown family, descendants of the Lakota war leader, presents the family tales and memories told to them about their famous grandfather. In many ways, the Clown family's oral history differs from what has become the standard and widely accepted biography of Crazy Horse. The family clarifies the inaccuracies and shares their story about the past, including what it means to them to be Lakota, the family genealogy, the life of Crazy Horse and his motivations, his death, and why they chose to keep quiet with their knowledge for so long before finally deciding to tell the truth as they know it.
