    I Also Recommend:

    If you want to learn about yourself, read this book--just wish I could have known him!! What a master!!

    This was, in my opinion, all of the self help books I have ever read rolled up in one--Bear Heart has the best insight into peoples' really important places!! He is the Master of all he went through and gives people a reason to look farther into themselves--he gives you the hope that there IS something there!!! He was a great man and a credit to all people. It has become one of the daily inspirational books for me--I read The Wind is My Mother and Bible verses before I even try to navigate this world. I will keep a copy with me the rest of my life--Thank You, Bear Heart.

    A Better Cure Than Medicine

    Bear Heart speaks with words that the human heart can understand. He does not flog us with a demand that we worship in any special way, only that we accept ourselves, our world, and all of creation as living and worthwhile. I could have avoided taking all those drugs for depression if I had known how to live in harmony with my environment. This is what he teaches as he gives us the guidelines. 'The Wind is My Mother' is full of hope for all nationalities and people of all faiths. I keep this book at hand for all the times I feel empty and hopeless because I can always find something to lift me up and make my heart thankful.

    Soul touching read!

    I have been enjoying this book immensely. The author is a Creek (Muskogee) healer and he presents his life experience, native and college education to everyday life. He presents his and his people views on many things: healing, religion, race relations, history, spirituality and more. Each chapter seems to discuss a truth that strikes home with me. I repeatedly find myself in tears of joy and/or sadness while reading this book. I hope you enjoy it as much as I am.

    Warm and Thought Provoking

    This book is great. It's like sitting at the feet of one of the elders and hearing a tale while at the same time learning some important life lessons. It's very heartfelt.

    Interesting and Inspirational

    I thought it was interesting reading about shamanism from a Native American Shaman. Bear Heart shares a lot of wisdom and sayings of his people and of his own experiences. Some parts of the book seem to drag out, but overall it is worth a read if you are interested in Native American ways, particularly shamanism.
