From best-selling Native American writer Joseph M. Marshall III comes an inspirational guide deeply rooted in. .At the beginning of the book are two untitled pages. Initially, I was confused by this until I started reading the book.

At the beginning of the book are two untitled pages. These two pages (where each paragraph begins with "Grandfather says this") are keyed to each chapter and have the MAIN bits of wisdom that Old Hawk passes on to Jeremy. These two untitled pages are repeated again at the end of the book. Don't think that you can read only these two untitled pages and get full value from this book!

When a young man’s father dies, he turns to his sagacious grandfather for comfort. Together they sit underneath the family’s cottonwood tree, and the grandfather shares his perspective on life, the perseverance it requires, and the pleasure and pain of the journey. Filled with dialogues, stories, and recollections, each section focuses on a portion of the prose poem “Keep Going” and provides commentary on the text.

Readers will draw comfort, knowledge, and strength from the Grandfather’s wise words—just as Marshall himself did.

Reviews about Keep Going: The Art of Perseverance (7):
I have become a big Joseph Marshall fan. This is small, short, but very very good. I can't rate it quite as high as "Returning to the Lakota Way" by the same author, because that book was very special. Still, the 4-star rating is quite close to the 5-star level. If you appreciate and can get deeper meaning from this style of "story telling," you'll appreciate this book greatly. Reviewers that leave low reviews for Mr. Marshall's books most likely are very concrete in their thinking and unable to grasp what's really being taught. Joseph Marshall has an extraordinary gift. Anyone that doesn't "get" his books (i.e. doesn't "get" a significant personal experience out of them), is sadly missing a wonderful opportunity.
This book is VERY uplifting and I reccomend for ALL ages. I have come to love long before this book the native american teachings. Not only have I ordered copies for my friends, but I also read this book to my 5 year old son because he really understands the stories and hopefully retains the great values in this book. It is very short (just under 100 pages) but has far surpassed the value of a book over 1000 pages that I have read from inspirational speakers and even pastors. Pushing forward even if just one more step than you think you can handle. This book has a GREAT way of explaining why life is not easy but the journey and hardships is what shapes our charecter to be strong individuals.
A great read for anyone feeling overwhelmed by life's trials. A compilation of short stories expressing hope, understanding and perseverance. I was given a copy by a friend after being diagnosed with cancer, and I liked it so much I bought my own copy to share with others.
Be more like the Lakota's. We have strayed so far from it as a nation and a world culture.

This book is more than about persevering. It is about how the Lakota's treat family, friends, and everyone else. They are so in tune with accepting others as they are, helping each other out and dealing with life. They understand nature is part of the whole and not something that should be abused.

They sound like our forefathers' when they came to America and how we used to act as a nation--hard working, respectful and thankful for what they have.

I highly recommend this book for anyone to read just not those going through a hard time in life.

I have sent this book to one friend and a CD to another I think so much of it and they both love what it is all about.
This book was inspirational. I loved the stories told of the old ways from Grandfather- and how they are so relevent to today. 'Strength is a child of effort and pain' is a mantra that I repeat to myself in tough times- as well as 'keep going.' Overall a great book, I'm looking forward to reading more of Joseph Marshall's books on the Lakota people and their stories.
Since I came down with Wegener's disease, very rare and very serious. I have had bouts of self pity and depression; along with a full list of other emotions. When I ordered this book I was not really clear what it was really about. It was a great help to me, especially in the self pity department. It's not just one of those self help books,it's more than that. I highly recommend it.I've been on the red road for a couple of years now and this is just one of many books that I found very nice. "The dance house" is wonderful as well as several by Ed McGaa and others by Marshall.
“Keep Going”, the Art of Perseverance, by Joseph M. Marshall III

This is a 157-page series of quaint parable-type stories set within the primary story of a single conversation between a Grandfather and his grandson. The theme throughout is that a person should expect both good and bad in Life, and the important thing is to keep going.
I received this book as a gift from family members after having a serious motorcycle accident. I had lots of questions running around about some things and the help I received during that traumatic time. This book has the answers to a lot of things, and the first time I picked it up it was very hard to put down. I would like to own all of Marshall's books. This is one I will be purchasing many copies of, for sure!

Highly recommended. Forget going to pay a counselor. Listen to the Elders!
