    I have bought several copies of this book and have shared the title with many people. I want every school child to read this book, to know the history of the people native to this land from their words. I want more interviews like this.

    Great book, not only as a lesson in the philosophies of Native Americans, but also their legends and view of the future. Truly delightful!

    The book itself is in even better shape than I had expected, so I'm very pleased. The photographs are magnificent. Sandy Johnson writes really well as I discovered in her book of Tibetan Elders which was has been one of my favorites for some years now and was the reason I ordered this book. The mailing service was excellent.

    This book is like the sequel to Wisdom's Daughters. The book gives you the feeling of the Native American's Bible. There is so much we can learn from the Native American culture. Their life is so down to earth simple...respect people if you want them to respect you!

    Do not miss this book if you are interested in wisdom that one seldom, gets in any world that is not Indigenous. Indigenous wisdom gives us lessons for life lived from the heart and lived in tune with our Mother Earth, particularly from elders; be they natives of Turtle Island (North America), Australia, New Zealand, South America or the African continent.
