Gift of Power: The Life & Teachings of a Lakota Medicine Man
Product No. 4119-001-207
Archie Fire Lame Deer & Richard Erdoes - This is a wondrously magical book; a highly accessible and readable introduction to the beauty of the ancient Lakota religion and way of life, as well as a fascinating human story of Archie Fire Lame Deer, a modern day Lakota spiritual man and son of John Fire Lame Deer. Compelling chapters take the reader through the traditional Lakota world of spirituality, lore and custom, explaining and describing ceremonies and the Sun Dance, as well as the different kinds of "medicine men" as best they can and making clear that there is much that simply cannot be explained satisfactorily to the English speaking non-Indian. 280 pages, 16 photos. SC.
