This biography by Neihardt is very enlightening into the life of an Oglala Medicine Man. The audience begins with the story of the peace pipe and into the life of Black Elk. Black Elk's visions are stunning and the pictures in this special edition enhance the story. You may want to glance at the notes in the margin as they help explain some of the instances where Neihardt may not have had the proper translation or added to the biography to make the text flow a little better. The text also recounts the Battle of Wounded Knee from the eyes of the Sioux. Think your history textbook taught you everything you should know about Native Americans? Try this instead.
