Publisher's Synopsis

Based on information given to Dr. James Walker a century ago by Lakota Holy Men, this compilation includes the cycle of creation, the appearance of spirits and animals, the making of the four directions, and the coming of the Real People.

This book is part of an effort to enable the Lakota to know their foundations—to understand from whence they came... A valuable source for tribal groups and individuals who are frustrated with complex and confusing scholarly originals but want to learn the old stories and reconnect with ancient spiritual traditions.

"An eloquent and accessible rendering of the mighty creation myth of the Lakota people, which ranks among the most stirring in earth literature."         ~Peter Mathiessen
