A lovely book about the traditions of the Lakota tribe, their admiration for and honor of their elders and how the wisdom of the elders is passed onto younger generations. One that I particularly liked was the circle of life, the lesson taught by throwing a stone into a shallow slough and watching the circles of waves push out. The author's grandfather then connected those circles to the shape of the sun and moon and onto the circle of life of all living things, animals, plants and humans,being [...]

The power of traditional stories is very evident in this book. Without the oral tradition of cultures they die away and the Native American culture has a strong and incredibly interesting oral culture. Read this one for the shear pleasure of it. Read this one to learn from it. Read this one to look at what happens when the youth and the elders spend time communicating, learning and enjoying the unique moments they have.

Once again Joseph Marshall III takes the stories from his youth and applies them to our day. So much can be learned listening to our elders. The idea of death at the end of our journey being the beginning of another journey is something we need to teach and embrace. The last chapter speaks of wisdom. He writes, "My grandfather was giving back the gift that life had given him. Wisdom is life's gift. Everything that has happened to us, and is happening, is life's way of giving us wisdom. Wisdom do [...]

I learnt alot from this book a lot of things that hadn't crossed my mind like the value and importance of the Elders. The true meaning of being a leader. That every event and person that we encounter in our life has meaning and has the potential to give us a lesson. This and many more wisdoms are shared in this book it needs re- and rereading to undersand it fully. Good book, and I think though it is good for all ages, it is especially useful for adolescents and would teach them how to be more h [...]

My Mom gave this book to us for Christmas from Grandpa Elder, since he could no longer physically be with us. It is perfect for reading to elementary age kiddos. I would not have found it nearly as interesting, if it weren't used as a teaching tool for the little ones. Great for exposing them to Native Americans and their culture.

This book was a disappointment to me. It had large print, blank pages, and drawing to almost try to stretch the book out. The ideas that he learned from his grandfather seem almost like copies of other authors I've read, but quite simplistic. It am not sure I really trust the sincerity of the author. There was little substance to the vast majority of the book.

This was probably the first book I have ever read on Native American spirituality/traditions, and I loved it. Great insights into the Lakota's reasons behind their reverence for elders, and just plain good advice on how to live a little more simply.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It is an easy read, comfortable and story-like. There were a few choice quotes I'm going to have to go back and highlight in the ebook. Things like the metaphor of the bow and arrow for a husband and wife or like his words about wisdom and what it is.

This book is so beautiful, I really don't want it to end. What a wealth of wisdom and courage in this small book. Now I'm reading it to my students. I hope some few parts of it touch them.

I loved this book. It helped me when I needed to just listen to life again and had forgotten how.

Perhaps I've read too much of this in a short time. There are good lessons to be had, nonetheless.

I enjoyed the stories and beliefs shared within this book. Often things were repeated that didn't need to be but for the most part, I think this book would benefit everyone to read.
