Nineteenth-century Native American leader Crazy Horse is a shadowy figure for the very good reason that he spent most of his life either as a recluse or among people who kept no written records. McMurtry respects those shadows. In addition to its nominal subject, this book has much to say about how history is written, and about the irreducible uncertainties that must sometimes be accepted. Scott Brick has a rich voice; he shapes every phrase with intelligent engagement. This reviewer is inclined to characterize nonfiction audiobooks as primarily an eye-freeing convenience. Here is an exception. Fine prose beautifully read is a pleasure in itself. J.N. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 00]
