The story begins when the writer receives a phone call out of the blue from a woman living on a reservation. She reluctantly explains her elderly grandfather would like the help of the author in writing down long-collected memoirs. The anglo-saxon author then proceeds to spend time with the old Indian man on the reservation listening to and writing up memories, stories, opinions and anecdotes that the old man has held on to for many years. The story then unfolds the writer's own reactions and emotions relating to the old man's world-view. Even if the reader has little interest in Native American life and history, this book is a must. Amazes, saddens, educates but pulls no punches; this book reminds us that there is more to life than the latest mobile phones, new cars and aspiring to bigger salaries.

I got this book after reading extract of it on a website, thought it was really interesting as I had a interest in the native american experience there on.
I surely was not disappointed, the author writes in a personal account style to carry the reader through his experience with a native american elder named Dan. The writing style is very informal and detailed enough to give you a feel that you was also going along with Kent Nerburn on the trip. Whole conversations recorded, minimal narration, just pure experience of his time with the native americans.
Dan the elder native is a deep fellow of real true wisdom and understanding of the world, shares his thoughts and experiences as a native american in white america and the perspective he and many native americans seem to share. Included are Kent Nerburn (white), personal private thoughts at times, and his words, which as a white person myself, could highly relate and along the journey saw the beautiful alternative view of life the native american brothers have.
Highly recommended, really good read. A must buy for everyone who wishes to hear about a alternative way of thinking/living.

I was implored by my brother to watch the film of this book. He hyped it as one of the most important films ever made and one I simply must watch. I watched it and found it to be a good film, not a great film. I don't know if he over sold it to me, or if I missed something, so I decided to read the book. It is engrossing from the first page. The building of the relationship between Nerburn and Dan is a bridging of cultures and understanding. The book challenges even modern perceptions of American and pre American history. The emotion of the final chapters in particular reduced me to tears. The film was good, the book is great.
