A wonderful journey into the Sioux life
I loved this book!! It was required reading in my English 1 class, and I'm glad it was. The emotions I felt reading about this man's life were so strong: I laughed, cried, and got so damn angry over what this man and his people(ALL Native Americans!)have had to go through! This book is truly a moving and awe-inspiring piece! A must read!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

John Lame Deer, A Man of Many Men
John Lame Deer lived an amazing and inspiring life. Not only was he a criminal, drunkard, and 'peyoter,' but he was also a cop and ended up as a medicine man. The common theme of change present through out the novel captures a dream lost in the lives of many men. The dream to live according to the heart and the land and have a daring yet amazing time doing it. Not only does John Lame Deer illustrate entertaining personal heartfelt stories about his life, but he also gives a strong background of the Sioux Indian culture. Also involved in the book is a humorous undertone. The autobiography has impacted my life and should be read by anyone who both appreciates good literature as well as culture.Was this review helpful?
