Trek America, 1981
After the Margaret Thatcher people exodus of 1981 I decided that it was now the time to return back to Sydney, Australia. This time I would not return back to Edinburgh, Scotland. While travelling from New York City through the southwest to Los Angeles I picked up two publications, Black Elk Speaks and Lame Deer: Seeker of Visions. At the Grand Canyon campsite I was informed by a northern trek driver of the amazing Crazy Horse Memorial under progress in the Black Hills of South Dakota. The driver was also reading Mari Sandoz, Crazy Horse: The Strange Man of the Oglala’s. At last I had something to look forward to in the months and years ahead. Finding out about the real historical happenings of the Lakota-Sioux and the Cheyenne during the years of warfare against the Americans for control of the Northern Great Plains. It was a starting point for my journey.
