It is my duty to see that this powerful story goes out to all the world. The Nation, the environment, Mother Earth and your children seeking Nature's health-filled solitude, its freedom and vast mysteries, all will be better for it. Non-Indian writers lamented our past yet avoided the real past. Too often they wrote in a superior, paternalistic style. Some exceptions, however, were the truthful, respectful works of Neihardt, J. Epes Brown and Jack Weatherford. Too often, Native writers, story tellers and artists had to patronize non-Indian publishers in order to be published or, customarily had the white man write their books for them. Other Native writers simply avoided religious and historical oppression, knowing that they stood little chance of being published. Some have touched on the edge but none have donned their warbonnets and plunged headlong into what really happened. This is an Indian book. It has an Indian Publisher, an extremely talented Indian Artist who does not hold back and a fearless Indian Author - who tells a true story of a people who regained their Hoop. There is no dilution! What is fictional of 'mystery' within these pages - is obvious. - Joe Brewer (from book's back cover)
