Story Rating: ****
Cover Rating: A
Wow… this book includes a heavy dose of spiritualism with strong biographical overtones regarding the life of Black Elk and the history of the Lakota people. The book is gripping, inspirational, and offers insight that I haven’t often seen in other historical texts based around native peoples. Even if you were not to have the same spiritual beliefs as depicted in the book, there is much you can take away from it – and come away a better person. Spiritual beliefs aside, this is a must-read for anyone interested in American history or Native American studies.
The cover is eye-catching and accurately depicts what readers should expect to find within the book.
