Publisher's Summary

A note is left on a car windshield, an old dog dies, and Kent Nerburn finds himself back on the Lakota reservation where he traveled more than a decade before with a tribal elder named Dan. The touching, funny, and haunting journey that ensues goes deep into reservation boarding-school mysteries, the dark confines of sweat lodges, and isolated Native homesteads far back in the Dakota hills in search of ghosts that have haunted Dan since childhood.

In this fictionalized account of actual events, Nerburn brings the land of the northern High Plains alive and reveals the Native American way of teaching and learning with a depth that few outsiders have ever captured.

Excellent follow-up, not as good narration.

This narrator wasn't near as good as the one who read "Neither Wolf nor Dog." The main character of Dan sometimes comes out sounding like a miscast Peter Lori.

A fantastic story told by an amazing artist

Loved it- very moving, and Peter's voice acting really brings it alive. Great story, great narrator.

Eye opening

Kent Nerburn is becoming one of my favorite authors. I have been systematically going through his work and I have not been disappointed yet. I have learned a lot from reading his books. If you are interested in the history of Native Americans , their wisdom, and the trials they have had to endure in this country, then you should give them a look. You might learn something that you weren't taught in school.

heartbreaking. emotional. insightful.

I loved it. the native American philosophy presented in this book is so poignant and so far removed from what the common white man American believes to be right. if only we could adopt Dan's belief system and carry it forward to our heirs, what a remarkable different and indescribably better world we would have.
thank you
