Hearing the Lakota historian and storyteller read these wonderful tales, listeners will know they are part of a deep historical tradition of teaching character traits through colorful, heartwarming stories. Marshall is a quiet and intimate interpreter who stands back from the stories and lets their curious power speak for itself. The narrative presents the lessons as passed down to a grieving young man by his grandfather. The dialogue between the two provides a timeless view of what young people in every culture need and mostly do not ask their elders to provide. The lessons on determination, perseverance, courage, and faith are made more poignant by the sting of the young man's immediate loss and the grind of life's constant challenges.
