My life has been enriched by attending sweat lodge ceremony and I wanted to know more about the seven rites of the Oglala tradition which are beautifully told by Mr Brown. He maintains the spirit of Black Elk's speech while creating an opening for the non-native to listen to these amazing and very sensible ways of seeing the world inside and outside us all. This book is art and history and mystery and psychology all at once, written in a most pleasing style.
