The saga of "Custer's Last Stand" has become ingrained in the lore of the American West, and the key players: Crazy Horse, Sitting Bull, and George Armstrong Custer, have grown to larger-than-life proportions. Now, award-winning historian Joseph M. Marshall presents the revisionist view of the Battle of the Little Bighorn that has been available only in the Lakota oral tradition. Drawing on this rich source of storytelling, Marshall uncovers what really took place at the Little Big Horn and provides fresh insight into the significance of that bloody day.
Drawing upon extensive research and oral traditions from family and friends, Joseph M. Marshall's biography departs from the stereotypes and dry textbook portrayals of Crazy Horse. Having grown up hearing stories from those whose own parents knew him, Joseph Marshall listened to the memories and walked the places where Crazy Horse walked, in the process providing us with a biography that presents him as the Lakota knew him. 310 indexed pages, softcover.

The white men called it the "Battle of the Rosebud". The Cheyenne called it "Where the Girl Saved Her Brother". Buffalo Calf Road Woman rode through the dust and weapons of warfare to save her brother as he fell from his horse, earning her the respect of her tribe.

Culled together from oral histories, scarce historial mentions and drawings, the authors have fleshed out her story with knowledge of how other Cheyenne lived. Combining factual research from the best museums, archaeologial data and documents with what's known of Buffalo Calf's life, creates a unique, fictionalized but accurate portrait of a forgotten life. 242 pages, softcover.

Dr. Pimsleur's extremely accessible and successful program teaches you language in the same way a native speaker would--through exposure to everyday, normal conversations. Instead of chopping up a foreign language into a little bit of grammar and a dash of vocabulary, he presents the language as a whole. And rather than memorizing repetitive drills that only dull learning, the Pimsleur "input/output" system of learning actually challenges your brain, and asking you to recall what you've learned.
Basic Ojibwe will provide you with the vocabulary and language tools to learn the basics of a foreign language quickly and easily. You can listen anywhere, in the car or jogging, while the audio-only instruction teaches you spoken language organically. Thirty minute lessons with both grammar and vocabulary are designed to optimize the amount of language that can be learned in one sitting. The Basic Pimsleur Program is comprised of the first 10 lessons in the Pimsleur Comprehensive Level 1 course. 5 Audio CDs included.
