Not what I expected, but still useful. I was hoping for more depth- a series of stories, teachings, or meditations to help me get closer to creator, but the book was very small was just a page for each day with a short quote from a tribal leader and/or a "did you know?" fact of some kind or a "this day in Native history" fact. Each month there was one 'red road lesson', most of which any adult would already be familiar with. That being said, I would recommend that parents buy this book and read the date with their young ones, or perhaps give it as a gift to a 'coming of age' young adult the year before their vision quest or maybe as a gift for a girl's sunrise ceremony (or whatever your tribe's equivalent). It is an easy read, very appropriate for young people. Parents- it would take two minutes to do it every morning with your kid, and once a month you could discuss that 'red road lesson', and expand on it with your own teachings.

I looked forward to reading the day's "quote/knowledge" every morning before departing for work. Makes one realize that the Native Americans had it all figured out about how to live ethically and in harmony with the land and nature; and valued the things that are sacred.

my wife got this book for me for christmas. i found it on a differant site and asked for it. i'm realy happy she got it for me. the discription that i read on the other site was not even close to what is in this little book. the first thing i do when i get up in the morning is to read the days words of wisdom. i find it to be very insparational. it is only the 17th of jan. and i have repeted the quotes to other people several times. i can hardly wait see what's next. i'am enjoying it alot. not every quote of the day is spiritual. some are more historical. i would recomend this book to anyone who is interested in native american history or culture for any reason. no matter what you beleive in spiritualy. most of the dayly readings will help guide you on a better path. no matter if it's the red road or a different path. i feel if you truly read the words written in your heart. you will benifit spiritualy from this book.

Basically this book is just a bunch of insightful quotes and random facts about Native American history. Although the quotes and information are very wonderful, this is completely different then what I expected to read. Its more of an overload of info than it is a pleasant read. Some of the quotes even repeat itself. If you are really looking for a book to help you live on the red road, I would not recommend this. The title is misleading. If it was titled "Great Native American Wisdom" or "Native American Words to Live by" then the book would have been great. Needless to say I was disappointed.

A PERFECT BOOK TO TAKE A FEW MINUTES EVERY MORNING OR EVENING TO READ THE DAILY DEVOTION OF LIVING THE NATIVE AMERICAN PATH. THIS REMINDS YOU TO BE GOOD, WALK RIGHT, AND NEVER FORGET OUR CREATOR. KEEP IT CLOSE BY. IT ONLY TAKES A FEW MINUTES TO READ THE "WORDS OF THE DAY". YOU DON'T EVEN HAVE TO BE NATIVE AMERICAN TO GET A LOT OUT OF THIS BOOK. IT'S A RATHER SMALL BOOK, PURSE SIZE AND EVEN PERFECT TO TAKE PLACES WHERE YOU MAY HAVE A SHORT WAIT SO YOU CAN READ IT THEN MEDITATE A LITTLE TO ABSORB THE MEANING OF THE PASSAGES. BUY IT TODAY!

After a one week visit to Cherokee NC, I have been using this book daily as a morning reflection. I find it both inspiring and informative about native American culture and spirituality, so often ignored or belittled by many Americans. The only lack in the book, in my opinion, is brief accounts of violence among the Native Americans, both before being "discovered" by the European colonists and in contact with them. The majority of the fine book seems to protray our native American brothers and sisters as 'noble savages, pure, untainted and peace loving. I find little mention of inter-tribal hostility.
