    I had some really mixed impressions on this particular book First I'm always a little leery of people who write books on anything and fail to leave a bibliography; even if they grew up in a Native American tribe and were told the stories as a young child I would like to see a sources page that says personal interview with Second some of the statements were just laughable The moon no longer has a twenty eight day cycle because of mining minerals on Earth I think there are a few geologists and astrophysicists who have better explanations? Yes that was written in the introduction if I'm not mistaken; it just made me laughFinally the legends were interesting but I could have done without the original poetry; further expound upon your tribe's beliefs or demonstrate an instance where you had a major epiphany There were some statements that just came off to me as the kind of statements that would come out of a book that you'd buy at a grocery store for someone as a gift; they were kind of preachy and stuck out as not the kind of thing I would expect to find in a book on spiritualityOverall it wasn't a bad book per say so much as a book that didn't appeal to me I was expecting of a hard study of Native American philosophy and this book wasn't it I was told to read God is Red and Red Earth White Lies for that type of reading so I think I'll check that out when I get the chance
