People are stories. Author, teacher, and craftsman Joseph Marshall has written novels, screenplays, essays, short stories, and nonfiction books. He's also a storyteller.

Joseph Marshall is in South Dakota for the Young Readers Festival this week. An enrolled member of the Rosebud Sioux Tribe, he was raised in a traditional Lakota household.

His book "In the Footsteps of Crazy Horse" tells the story of a boy and his grandpa as the travel together on a quest to know Crazy Horse.

The In The Moment team reached Joseph Marshall III at his home in New Mexico for a special interview.
