Format: Hardcover
What is dangerous for some people can be sacred and useful for the others who can utilize that and we should respect those. Jay Fikes' book proved this true for me for peyote, a sacred cactus for Native Americans and pschedelic drug for others who do not know how to use it.
Moreover, I was deeply impressed with the Native American character Reuben Snake. This brave, compassionate man inspired me about how to live in harmony with the nature, the world and all that dwell theron. He showed me that the obstacles are in our minds and if we overcome these there will be no obstacles at all.
This book also helps many realize "Being Indian is being a human being and human beings deserve respect for what they believe, for their religions, cultures, etc."
Jay Fikes had done a wonderful job by introducing this humble serpent to our lives.

a wonderful example how things come to be when you humble yourself and engage in the spirit of selflessness.The way the subject expresses himself of his experinces and the dramatic confrontations he was part of.Rueben throws light on the true nature and energy of a given circumstance.Withholding ego ,rationality he exudes clarity.

Greetings,

Ruben Snake stands as one of the great spiritual leaders of our day. He took on the federal government after Antonin Scalia's Smith decision in 1990 eliminated any restraints on the persecution of the Native American Church, and he won.

Like Martin Luther King, Reuben Snake passed on just before we got to the Valley of Plenty, but he knew we would get here and keep going too.

Reuben Snake of a true historical figure who will be remembered and recognized by this Planet two hundred years from now.
