Neither Wolf Nor Dog: On Forgotten Roads with an Indian Elder

by Kent Nerburn

Signed by the author.

Book one in the Neither Wolf Nor Dog Trilogy (Neither Wolf Nor Dog, The Wolf at Twilight, The Girl Who Sang to the Buffalo)

In this 1996 Minnesota Book Award winner, Kent Nerburn draws the reader deep into the world of an Indian elder known only as Dan. It's a world of Indian towns, white roadside cafes, and abandoned roads that swirl with the memories of the Ghost Dance and Sitting Bull. Readers meet vivid characters like Jumbo, a 400-pound mechanic, and Annie, an 80-year-old Lakota woman living in a log cabin. Threading through the book is the story of two men struggling to find a common voice. Neither Wolf nor Dog takes readers to the heart of the Native American experience. As the story unfolds, Dan speaks eloquently on the difference between land and property, the power of silence, and the selling of sacred ceremonies. This edition features a new introduction by the author.

"This is a sobering, humbling, cleansing, loving book, one that every American should read." - Yoga Journal

"This book needed to be written. It eloquently describes many profound emotions that are difficult for many American Indian people to articulate. It is a book about healing the relationship between American Indians and whites. It is brutally honest and challenging." -- Carolyn, Birchbark Bookseller
