Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Delightful…Suitable for all listeners, this recording brings satisfaction on various levels—the lovely traditional music that accompanies the stories, the narrator’s calm and expressive voice, and the timeless wisdom the parables and fables convey. Solemn, insightful, and vivid, these stories evoke a tribal community gathered close, intently listening to an oral tradition that enlightens and inspires.” AudioFile
“Humility, perseverance, bravery, sacrifice, and love are among the twelve values of the Lakota tribe that are presented through traditional stories and personal commentary…The lessons for life, which stress the proverbial attributes of common sense and moral vigor, may not be surprising, but the stories that frame them will be new and forceful to most.” Publishers Weekly
“This charming, wise book is a multiple hybrid—part autobiography, part mythology, part philosophy. From historical and mythical Indian tales of his Sicunga Lakota Sioux heritage, Marshall adduces universally appealing and applicable messages. Twelve abstractions—wisdom, bravery, love, perseverance, and so forth—serve as the themes for the book’s chapters, in which Marshall moves gracefully between personal memories and the mythical memories of his people…The grace and love in this book are to be widely shared.” Booklist
