The Crying for a Vision is at once a dramatic account of the rise and fall of the Lakota Indians, and an absorbing allegorical saga of the Lakota orphan Waskn-Mani—Moves Walking. The Crying for a Vision vividly describes Moves Walking’s conflicts with the all-powerful, one-eyed warrior, Fire Thunder, whose rise to power eventually leads to the spiritual destruction of the earth and its people. In the end, it is up to the gentle, nature-conscious Moves Walking to save the world and heal its "elemental sorrow—the anguish of living things when the sacred hoop is broken," and to do so he must make the greatest sacrifice of all.

Walter Wangerin, Jr. grew up in North Dakota and spent many years with the Lakota Indians, participating in their sun-dances and listening to their stories. Backed by extensive research and his deep love of the Lakota people, The Crying for a Vision uses the Lakota and their vision of the universe as its prevailing metaphor for all the world.
Mr. Wangerin first came to prominence as the award-winning author of The Book of the Dun Cow. He has since won many other awards and honors for his books, among which is the best-selling Book of God. Wangerin holds the Jochum Chair at Valparaiso University in Indiana, where he is writer-in-residence.
