Returning to the Lakota Way Summary

Returning to the Lakota Way: Old Values to Save a Modern World by Joseph M. Marshall, III

In Returning to the Lakota Way, prolific author Joseph Marshall presents the follow-up to his highly regarded book The Lakota Way. Using beautiful storytelling to relay traditional tales passed down through the generations, Marshall once again takes the reader on a journey of growth and inspiration. Each chapter presents one story that exemplifies a quality or way of life that will encourage in readers a sense of inner peace amidst the busyness of modern life. From the hunting adventures of the raven and the wolf, we see the importance of tolerance; the lessons of the grasshopper impart the wisdom of patience; and the experiences of a young man named Walks Alone teach us about silence and turning within. Speaking to these and other universal qualities, such as faith and selflessness, Marshall gives readers insight into their own lives using tales from the past interspersed with stories from his own life growing up on the Rosebud Sioux Indian Reservation in South Dakota. In him, we see a clear example of the wisdom of history enhancing the state of the current world. This magnificent work will give readers an insider's view of the Lakota people while providing universal lessons to enrich life.

About Joseph M. Marshall, III

Joseph Marshall III was born and raised on the Rosebud Sioux Indian Reservation and is an enrolled member of the Sicangu Lakota (Rosebud Sioux) tribe. Because he was raised in a traditional Lakota household by his maternal grandparents, his first language is Lakota. In that environment he also learned the ancient tradition of oral storytelling. Marshall is an author with nine non-fiction works, three novels, a collection of short stories and essays and several screenplays to his credit. He is also a speaker and lecturer, having appeared throughout the United States and in countries such as France, Sweden and Siberia. Marshall has also appeared in television documentaries, served as technical advisor for movies, and served as the narrator for the six-part mini-series Into the West, as well as playing the on-screen role of 'Loved by the Buffalo', a Lakota medicine man. www.josephmarshall.com
