Reviews about Mourning Dove: A Salishan Autobiography (American Indian Lives) (7):
Buridora
I have been looking for books like Pretty-shield (Second Edition): Medicine Woman of the Crows (Second Edition) and Nisa: The Life and Words of a !Kung Woman for a while, and this book is in the same ilk. The books The Original Instructions: Reflections of an Elder on the Teachings of the Elders, Adapting Ancient Wisdom to the Twenty-First Century,RETURN TO CREATION, and Journey to the Ancestral Self: The Native Lifeway Guide to Living in Harmony With Earth Mother, Book 1 (Bk.1) got me started on seeking to understand indigenous lifeways, and I've read a lot, and lived the skills as possible. Well worth the read. Perhaps other reviewers might suggest similar books?
