DESCRIPTION

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, and 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 heroic story of Crazy Horse's later life, 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.

Highlights:

  • Crazy Horse's remarkable grace under pressure, and how to develop this quality yourself
  • Sitting Bull, Red Cloud, Spotted Tail, and other influential figures in the life of Crazy Horse
  • Humility, compassion, and selflessness—three core values of the Lakotas
  • Eight immersive sessions—six hours of teaching stories and insights from the rich oral tradition of the Lakotas, and much more

Superb although repetitious

When I first started listening to this recording I thought it should be heard while sitting around a camp fire, as being narrated by Joseph Marshall, while sipping on warm mulled wine! And again I thought the same, the next day--and realised today as I finished listening to it, that I heard almost all of this while either Ironing our clothes or cooking! :-) JM III is a truly gifted story teller, the story of crazy horse is bringing some huge insights and wisdom about my own life.

My only complaint with this recording is a lot of it is quite repetitious and began to irritate me a bit.

But thank you, thank you JM III and Tami. Bless you'll.

I love you.

Review for Quiet Thunder

I already thought I knew quite a bit about Crazy Horse, who along with Geronimo are two of my true American heroes. But Mr. Marshall enlightened me even more as I learned so much not only about this man, but also about lakota culture. Most of my reading about this period of history has been by Caucasian historians, not that their offerings weren't factual, but none of them ever shed the light on the subject as does Mr. Marshall. While my heart ached as he recounted the tragedies that befell his ancestors, I also felt a sense of awe for their strength and courage in facing overwhelming odds.His voice is easy to listen to and I know I'll be listening to this again on my next trip.

Review for Quiet Thunder

My admiration for John Marshall's storytelling and ability to bring Native American culture to life continues to grow. More history than story. Some parts are repetitious but overall a good presentation.

Review for Quiet Thunder

I have listened to all of the CD's and today, a month later, started them over again. What can I say? They are delightful, inspiring, comforting... I seems to me that the Lakota way would resonate with any human being. The stories and the wisdom are universal, the breadth is as wide as the sky.

Marshall's voice and phrasing are a perfect vehicle.
