I just love reading books about the numerous Native American histories, my bookcase is full of ones that I’ve already read and am always looking for new ones to read. I was lucky and found one today at my favorite used book store called “Black Elk Speaks” as told through John G. Neihardt (Flaming Rainbow) by Nicholas Black Elk.

It is named one of the ten best spiritual books of the twentieth century. It is the story of the famous Lakota visionary and healer Nicholas Black Elk (1863-1950) and his people during the momentous twilight years of the nineteenth century. I’m looking forward to reading it starting tomorrow.

  1. I just found a new (well new to me anyway) used book store less than one mile down the road from my place. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve driven by it and never really noticed it or the multiple signs surrounding it, but I’m so glad that I stopped by yesterday. They had boxes and boxes of hardback books for 50 cents and I found several pertaining to Native American histories, such as what you are speaking of. Interesting and educational as well, a good one to look for is “Indian Givers” written by Jack Weatherford on How The Indians Of The Americas Transformed The World of subjects of Weatlh, Food, Modern Corporations and Business, The Federal System of Government and Medicines.
