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.

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.

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.

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

Coulda Woulda Shoulda

This book is a classic example of what happens when something doesn't live up to its full potential. The writing itself was uneven. Sometimes I found the story fascinating, other times I had to hit the fast forward button to get through the nonsense. The narrator sounded like he was gargling pebbles, and tried far too hard to be sincere the entire time. I understand what the author was trying to convey, the cruelty and horrors the native American people suffered, but the book became increasingly preachy as it went on.

My biggest problem was with the stupidity of the narrator. Time after time Dan told him to shut up and he kept rambling. Far too often people don't understand the power of silence.

Aging, reconciliation, reckoning

A must-read after Neither Wolf nor Dog, but sad, too. Writing and performance both excellent.

Repair and sacred healing

This book is a most touching attempt of bridging the chasm between Indian and White Man, offering a glimpse into the Native wisdom of life so we may get a tiny inclin of what we all have lost. May the Wisdom live on and help repair the hurt, injustice and damage done. Yvonne Munshi January 2022

Even more deeply touching than the first

If you’ve listened to the first audiobook, it might be an adjustment to the new narration, but I promise it is so worth the listen. The author is truly called upon to tell these stories and his sense of care and urgency are very powerful. I highly recommend!
