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? On 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. In narrative rarely heard outside the Lakota circle, Marshall relates how the youth called Light Hair (Crazy Horse’s boyhood name) learned the virtues of a wica, or “complete man,” trusted to provide for and protect his family and community ... how the young Crazy Horse’s selfless actions and skill beyond his years earned him the title of “shirt wearer”—one esteemed by the tribe but challenged to live a life beyond reproach ... and the “hero story” of Crazy Horse—not only of his feats in battle, but of his true legacy, won through ceaseless commitment to preserve the way of life of his people, and the dignity of generations.
