The Art of Perseverance
From best-selling Native American writer Joseph M. Marshall III comes an inspirational guide deeply rooted in Lakota spirituality. When a young man's father dies, he turns to his sagacious grandfather for comfort. Together they sit underneath the family's cottonwood tree, and the grandfather shares his perspective on life, the perseverance it requires, and the pleasure and pain of the journey. Filled with dialogues, stories, and recollections, each section focuses on a portion of the prose poem "Keep Going" and provides commentary on the text. Readers will draw comfort, knowledge, and strength from the Grandfather's wise words--just as Marshall himself did.
