Praise for Lakota Woman"Inspirational."--The Midwest Book Review "A gritty, convincing document of one woman's struggle to overcome poverty and oppression in order to live in dignity as an American Indian."--Kirkus Reviews "Lakota Woman is a view from the inside."--San Francisco Chronicle "A powerful autobiography ... feisty and determined, warm and even funny, sometimes given to outbursts of rage or sorrow or enthusiasm, always unpretentious and straightforward." --Chicago Tribune "Stunningly honest .... The courage, nobility, morality, and humor that fill the pages of this book should be required reading." --David Amram "The moving story of a Native American woman who fought her way out of despair and bitterness to find the righteous ways of her ancestors."--William M. Kunstler "A piercing look into the ancient yet modern mind of a Sioux woman." --Oliver Stone "Her searing autobiography is courageous, impassioned, poetic, and inspirational." --Publishers Weekly

And yet through it all Mary Crow Dog's courage and humour shines through, you find yourself cheering for her towards the end, this book will remain on my bookshelf and will continue to be reread if only to remind myself that as Edmund Burke once said, 'evil does prosper while good people do nothing.'
A stunning read and one guaranteed to kindle once again the flame of freedom, a nation will be judged on how it has treated its poorest citizens. Cry freedom and let freedom live through the words of Mary Crow Dog.
raw and aesthetic, light and heavy, superficial and profound
it touches to everything that makes life, with the story of something destroyed and something reborn
