A two-time winner of the Minnesota Book Award, Kent Nerburn
is the author of thirteen books on spirituality and Native themes,
including Chief Joseph and the Flight of the Nez Perce
(featured on the History Channel), Neither Wolf Nor Dog, and
The Wisdom of the Native Americans. He lives in Portland,
Kent Nerburn speaks reverently of the bridge between our
Judeo-Christian tradition and the spiritual gifts of the Native
Americans. There is much healing to be had in our lives and for the
land by crossing this bridge.
Richard Rohr, bestselling author of Falling Upwards and The Divine Dance
Kent Nerburn reminds us that in the timeless Native American ways of seeing and being, the truth of life is not found in knowledge but in something closer to prayer. Even today, amidst coffee shops, graveyards, old cars, and cafeterias, the wisdom keepers Nerburn follows in his sensitively told narratives still follow the voices of stones, streams, and dreams, listening to the wind with open ears and open hearts, not knowing where it will lead, or what they will learn.
