I love this book, this story perhaps more than any other that I own. It is that moving! All my life I have had a deep heartache about the destruction of our Mother Earth at the hands of industrial humans in general, and the destruction of this land we call America at the hands of the European invaders in particular. This book delves deeply into this wound, brings tears of pain and anguish, and ultimately brings about some healing as well. I think it is a GREAT combination of Kerouac and Black Elk Speaks. It is beautifully written and hard to put down. I have read the book many times by now and have given copies to friends. Rumor has it there's a movie version in the works. I love this book so much I'm not sure I'd want to see what Hollywood might do to it! The book is enough, anyway.

This book is not only some of the most absolutely delicious writing I have ever found, but the content was truly ephiphany. Having lived for many years in a community that was filled with Native People, I always had the eerie feeling that I was somehow disingenuous when I was with them, (but couldn't quite figure out why). After reading this, I now understand. I cried all over the book, and belly laughed out loud. If white Americans are ever to hope for forgiveness for the gaping wounds and scars left by what the European people did to the Native People on this continent, we are first going to have to fully understand what happened, and then own the stinging, horrible truth of our ancestors, and our continuing racism. It comes to us, bitterly and sweetly, from the mouth of a Lakota elder, his friends and family, through the courageous pen and heart of Kent Nerburn. The last time I read a book that had as much impact on me as this one, it was Stienbeck's "Grapes of Wrath".

I didn't want to put the book down, but when I did, I looked forward to when I could read it again. While the story takes place over a short period of time, it eloquently speaks of thousands of years of life and culture. I highly recommend this book to anyone. It opens the door a crack to a world many of us will never know, but it is a world we need to learn about, acknowledge, and respect. I finished it weeks ago, yet I can recount all of the story, and I still can't look at the white, nor the Native American, way of life in the same light. I don't think I ever will. A wonderful book and a must-read.

I discovered this wonderful book because of its title and cover. What I found in the book moved me deeply in many ways. It touches on virtually all aspects of Indian life, both past and present. It reads like a novel, and brought tears of both laughter and despair to my eyes. I have read many Indian books; this one is by far the best and most enjoyable to read. I hereby nominate Kent Nerburn for the Nobel Prize - for Literature, for Peace, for a great gift to all those who read this book and the cause he hopes to serve. I cannot recommend this book enough

I was so sad when I finished this book and had to say goodbye to Dan. While reading it, I felt like a passenger in that truck, listening to Dan, laughing at his quips and on the verge of tears as he describes his anguish at what he has witnessed in his 80 years. I don't pretend to think that he speaks for all Indians, but it's intense to witness such a raw book. He pulls no punches. Whites may have a problem with it and it will trigger defensive feelings. But, it's so worth the trip.

I found this book as a school assignment, but when I started reading it, I could not stop. This book had a great effect on me as a person. While reading, it makes you think about how you are living your life and what you can do to change it to help yourself and society as a whole. Everyone should read this book because it will give everyone an understanding of how we were meant to live on this planet. I gaurentee you will enjoy this book.

A book of extraordinary beauty and pathos. The characters leapt off the pages; I was alternatively moved to tears and laughter. This book comes at you like a two-by-four between the eyes, but in the end is life-affirming and cathartic. One of the best books I have read. It will affect your thinking about Native Americans and the society we live in. An outstanding effort.

Lesen, lesen, lesen einfach lesen. Wer sich mit der indianischen Literatur oder der derzeitigen Situation der Ureinwohner, fälschlicherweise als Indianer bezeichnet, beschäftigt, kommt an diesem Buch nicht vorbei und er wird es auch lieben.
BACK TO THE ROOTS.........

Ken Nerburn's Neither Wolf Nor Dog perpetuates Pan-Indian images and at the same attempts to reinforce Pan-Indianism in the misinformed Euroamerican mainstream mind. He is quite successful with his task due to the fact that most of his readers are preconditioned with the idea that all Indians are one homogenous culture. He misunderstands, as he hopes his readers do, that multitudes of dynamic and unique cultures existed and continue to exist despite the cultural power of Pan-Indainism. Nerburn like many other Pan-Indian authors, many of them tribal memebers themselves, takes advantage of the misinformed public to peddle his fiction as fact. If you, as a reader who seeks the truth rather than mere entertainment, really can believe that this book is a meeting between Jack Kerouac and Black Elk Speaks then you have a lot to learn about the two of them. And so does Mr. Nerburn.
