Publisher's Summary

This collection of traditional Lakota stories is dedicated to children of all nations and races. The stories are a giveaway, a way of returning the gift of the stories preserved by Lakota elders and grandparents to pass on the traditions and perspectives of their people. These stories, usually told on winter evenings, are intended to teach proper behavior or a moral lesson, but without the narrow moralizing of many familiar fables. Good and evil are neither obvious nor polarized, and the multidimensional characters must face difficult choices, similar to ones that children and adults encounter in the present day. Storyteller Dovie Thomason has carefully selected seven timeless Lakota stories to teach and entertain youngsters, and their parents, too.

SO Good!.. for children or adults

Best storytelling I've ever heard on audible or audiobook. HIGHLY recommend for children and adults. The stories have deep wisdom and the storytelling performance and character voices are excellent. I just purchased the author's other audiobook and can't wait to listen.
