Most lives are lived solely in the present. But some lives are also lived with a spiritual and historical connection to the past. These lives grant us a sense of hope for the future.
NATIVE HEART is the story of Gabriel Horn and his attempt to live a modern man's life that's true to the indigenous spirit of this land we call America. As a teacher in the American Indian Movement Survival Schools, and as a writer, activist, husband, and father, Horn presents a challenging and haunting perspective on our "new world" culture and values. Whether it's revealing a genocide Western historians choose to ignore, enabling Native American prisoners to pray with the pipe, or teaching his own Native children the lessons of nature and history, Horn stays true to his heart and to the vision that inspired his journey. His encounters with the "shadow people," his relationship to the Earth, and his quest for understanding and purpose within the "Great Holy Mystery" are retold in this intimate autobiographical novel.

I hate to give negative reviews, and I tried to find something positive to say. It didn't happen. All I can say is that this reads about like what you'd expect from someone who calls himself "White Deer of Autumn." It's a bunch of New Age feel-good platitudes wrapped in a thick coat of quasi-Native American bafflegab. If this book is any indication, the only tribe this guy belongs to is the Wannabee.
