Product Description

Wolf at Twilight A note is left on a car windshield, an old dog dies, and Kent Nerburn finds himself back on the Lakota reservation where he traveled more than a decade before with a tribal elder named Dan. The touching, funny, and haunting journey that ensues goes deep into reservation boarding-school mysteries, the dark confines of sweat lodges, and isolated Native homesteads far back in the Dakota hills in sear...

Format: Paperback
The Wolf at Twilight is a multi-faceted book disguised as a fictionalized account of actual events. The book begins as the author receives a mysterious note telling him that the dog of an old friend has passed. Immediately, the author understands that this is an important message.

The author makes the trip to the reserve where he helps his friend lay the dog to rest. Then, the author finds out the deeper meaning of the call. He has been charged with helping his old friend find his lost sister. One of the biggest problems being that no one has seen the sister since she was a girl and didn't come home from the boarding school one summer.

On the surface, The Wolf at Twilight seeks to open our eyes to the horrible things that happened (and still happen) to native people in North America. The devastating effects of small pox, famine, and war on the traditional native way of life. The everyday experiences of children who were taken away from their families to go to boarding schools where they weren't allowed to talk their own language, were treated cruelly, and suffered indignities that we can't even comprehend. Then, the after effects of the loss of culture, family, and a sense of self.

However, on a deeper level, we begin to realize how we fail to see anything but our own way of being. We judge everything and everyone from our own perspective. In doing so, we miss the beauty and the potential lessons that others could provide. It's rather like building a jigsaw puzzle with half the pieces missing.

This is a follow on from Neither Wolf Nor Dog.Having read and really enjoyed that book I was eager to read Wolf At Twilight, and i was not disapointed. Kent Nerburn takes you into the lives of people within this book and I got a feeling of being there with him on his journey.I would recomend this to anyone interested in Native American culture. It is sad, funny and a fantastic read.

After thoroughly enjoying 'Neither Wolf Nor Dog', one of the best books I can remember reading, I was excited to find out about the follow up 'The Wolf At Twilight' and bought it straight away. I was not disappointed. Simply excellent, I could not put it down. If you liked, 'Neither Wolf Nor Dog' you'll love this; If you have any interest in the subject; you'll love them both (although it would be best to read 'Neither Wolf Nor Dog' first). If you just want a good thought provoking read, simply get them both, First Class!

This was the second in a series of three by Kent Nerburn.
I would say buy all three & start at the beginning even though they are all complete in themselves.
I love the way they are written & they are full of simple wisdom & understanding. I would thoroughly
recommend for anyone with an interest in the North American Indian heritage or just a love of
mankind in general.

Having been captivated by Kent Nerburn's journey of discovery in 'Neither Wolf nor Dog', I was desperately keen to read the sequel but wasn't expecting it to have such a strong story line and enthralling narrative. From the first words to the last I was totally immersed in the emotions of Kent, Dan, Grover and the others and turned the pages with mounting anticipation and excitement as the story moved towards its conclusion. But if ever there was a tale with morals, this is it. So much of what Dan has to say is relevant to us all and to the way we live our lives and relate to other people and alien cultures. This is another book that deserves to be read and that carries great power and wisdom in its words.
