"Not the right format, and maybe not the right book"
This is mostly a collection of short sayings. The collection is very valuable, but listening to them one after another does not really do them justice. This is the sort of book that one ought to pick up in order to read a page or two, think for a minute, and then go on.
If you're looking for a smattering of native American thought (as I was), this will do the job. But at the risk of giving away my imprisonment in a thoroughly Western mind, I could have used a bit more editorial effort to organize the various strands of thought. For example, the tribe of each speaker is given, but there is no explanation of what significance this might hold, or how the tribes related to one another. Dates for the quotations would also have been illuminating. I think most listeners who buy this title because they are curious about native American thought will find their curiosity largely unsatisfied.
"Deeply moved by these great words of wisdom"
One of my top ten books to read .
The quotes read along with native american flutes in the back.
The whole book.
I would like to but there is to much wisdom for one sitting .
"knowledge is power"
the more you learn about a people, the greater your identification with that people.
"Wisdom and insight"
beutifully done and read with wisdom and insightfulness for all.Needs to be read by all.
Great insight into honest thought. No hustle and bustle just plain truths for a wonderful life. My 17y/o daughter listens to it sometimes to bring herself back down to earth. Just a calming listening
This is a wonderful review of Native American spirituality. Very well done!
"Heavy words to seriously consider"
This book contains groups of Native American sayings that can still be applied today. It is broken up by chapters associated with different concepts. Each saying is read by one of three narrators in calm and relaxing tone.
"Sad Sayings Of A Dieing People"
There was some wisdom more complaints! I am native and love my heritage but this book made me sad.
"Great wisdom in a small package."
The native Americans had a great take on this thing called life. I enjoyed hearing these. I will benefit from having this book in my life.
You cannot help but listen to these words with the ears of your heart. We could still save our mother if all people would listen and judge ourselves rightly.
