    This book has many lessons. Presented in a captivating way that keeps the audience hooked. From war stories, Giants, Giant Snakes, and the crazy deer woman. The Lakota way can increase the humanity in all of us.

    Beautiful! I listened to this book once before and still remembered the stories! The way the book is organized is pleasant. The author delves into the past and pulls out ancient legends then brings forth more recent anecdotes. It is sad but ultimately uplifting and I really hope more people pick this up. The fact that the author narrates it is fantastic. His tone is soft and very soothing but not to the point where you would fall asleep. On the contrary you are left alert and aching for more stories. Excellent all around!
