A short but very interesting and worthwhile book about the Sioux customs and beliefs by Mari Sandoz who, especially during her childhood, had contact to them as their old camping ground near the Sandoz family's home.

Chapters focus on different aspects of Sioux life. Short, interesting. This line resonates:"This sense must not be that of the infant, to whom all things are joined, his to command, but that of the adult, upon whose conduct all things are dependent."

I have read elsewhere the that Sioux of Mari Sandoz' day highly respected her for telling their stories accurately. This short book gives excellent insight into Sioux culture and world view.

When I am going to teach a Native People, I like to read a background book. Ms. Sandoz wrote this in old age from childhood memories. Wonderful details, sensitive wish it were longer!
