I finished this book recently. I have never read a Seton book, but I will be ordering many more. His writing style is interesting, blending storytelling with supportive research. His insights into society and Native American culture are enlightening. The illustrations are well done and add a great deal to the book. I am glad that I purchased the illustrated edition. His ideas are timeless, I kept checking the original date of publication. The Native American poetry was very thought provoking. I only wish that his vision could be realized, our society would be incredible. I would recommend this to anyone interested in Native American philosophy or wisdom.
