Summary

The 1996 Minnesota Book Award winner - a Native American work.

The heart of the Native American experience: In this 1996 Minnesota Book Award winner, Kent Nerburn draws the listener deep into the world of an Indian elder known only as Dan. It’s a world of Indian towns, white roadside cafes, and abandoned roads that swirl with the memories of the Ghost Dance and Sitting Bull. Listeners meet vivid characters like Jumbo, a 400-pound mechanic, and Annie, an 80-year-old Lakota woman living in a log cabin. Threading through the audiobook is the story of two men struggling to find a common voice. 

Neither Wolf nor Dog takes listeners to the heart of the Native American experience. As the story unfolds, Dan speaks eloquently on the difference between land and property, the power of silence, and the selling of sacred ceremonies. This edition features a new introduction by the author, Kent Nerburn.

“This is a sobering, humbling, cleansing, loving book, one that every American should read.” (Yoga Journal)

If you enjoyed Empire of the Summer Moon, Heart Berries, or You Don’t Have to Say You Love Me, you’ll love owning and listening to Neither Wolf nor Dog by Kent Nerburn.

Powerful

This is a story that is rich with perspectives on so many topics of the past, present, and future; it should be including in reading lists for students and adults who have been either knowingly or unknowingly deprived of this knowledge and understanding. I wish politicians and policy-makers would be required to read it.
The Audible version added a layer of understanding that I would have missed by reading alone. Well-done. Recommended.

Gripping. Soulful. Necessary.

a story that should be at the forefront of American public education. We need to come to terms with our history or we will all remain prisoners of it. This encounter takes on the many challenges of breaking impass at the crossroads of cultural identities and brings us to the present as an offering to those who will listen. Wonderfully written.

Enlighten

This book brought many good points to light but I would be interested in another persons perspective on some of the key points like the ghost dance and what news the four directions bring mostly for self clarification.

I was left speechless....

I was expecting to be left with the looming feeling of frustration and shame with the history of our country as the book guides through its entirety. But instead my heart felt full, and understanding washed through me. What an amazing opportunity that the author can share his experience and the gift that he was givin by this elder. If you are interested in Indian history and identify as a Native American Ally it's is a no brainer must read.
