Rated 5 out of
DEFINITELY A MUST-READ!
The Lakota Way is a magnificently written book that will enrich your life in many ways. Each chapter is dedicated to a virtue essential to the Lakota (better known as the Sioux) people. Mr. Marshall masterfully paints a picture of each virtue by sharing traditional stories passed down through the generations. Important lessons in life are wonderfully illustrated and can easily be connected to modern day life. He incorporates his own fascinating life story throughout, providing additional insight into Lakota beliefs and customs. A historical overview featuring tribe development, ceremonies, battles, heroes, and relocation makes this a wonderfully enlightening read as well. For instance, the compelling story of Crazy Horse, whose humility outshone his fame, was utterly captivating.Mr. Marshall is truly a gifted storyteller with an engaging and eloquent writing style. The book was very easy to read and impossible to put down. I absolutely loved it! Its an absolutely wonderful book and I highly recommend it for everyone!
