About the Author
Red Elk is a Metis Medicine Man, who is a member of the Inner Heyokha. Red Elk is a Wakhan, a Spiritual Adviser (similar to a priest/preacher) which is a called position. Red Elk states, "YOU DON'T NEED ME. Never really have. You who want to know the Inner Heyokha' Way can find that way in "The Good Book" (WITH Concordance),and connecting to The Great Creator...with FULL TENACITY. This will not make you an Inner Heyokha'...but VERY CLOSE. It CAN be done...and IS! "FOLLOW ME" (Big Brother) and you will grow to the Inner Peace we 12 have. We call this: "PURITY". Aho? Alright, unless ordered otherwise, I've done all I can do. I WISH YOU ALL WELL. We ARE: "ALL one RELATION". Ho.

Much of What Grandfather (Red Elk) says in this book is true... it should also be noted the seriousness of "testing", that this lesson should not be taken lightly. Three times just like he says... Any less and your missing out. It's worth spending the time trying to understand these words and put into perspective that he has walked an honest and godly path... that he is an 'example' that we can follow... there is still hope because of works like this.
His stories Gave me a strong feeling of when I was little and would sit with my own grandfather, listening to his stories again and again... wondering the ways of a time that had long since past. Sitting with Red Elk brought a very strong connection to my own inner self, and very much is like being able to open the book and sit with grandfather again and listen to the old stories... In a world like our own where the sense of elders and respect of what they know is being lost, I view this book as a necessary read for anyone on the path to 'salvage' what may someday be gone.
I will finish this review by saying that we should not look upon Red Elk and his 'miraculous' experiences in life as though he has somehow been singled out and praised beyond the rest, but that we should try and see these qualities in ourselves, and look beyond the false exteriors that society has instilled in us. We are all Godly and ALL capable of the things red elk tells... in both his book and youtube video's/blog... Search truthfully and with great intent to love and the answers will become apparent and true... the bad will wash away.
There is more to this book than I could tell in this review. Any serious seeker would be wise to have these stories and regard them as a sacred tool for many things...
WARNING TO READERS :) If you try to read just a little, you may not be able to put it down. Why? Not sure :) It is as if the very "Spirit" of Grandfather Red Elk is soaking through the pages of his book.
TIMELESS, TRANSPORTING, it made me feel as in I were in a timeless place, in other dimensions, or time. Have been surprised at these beautiful simple stories having such a timeless, amazing ability to take the pure hearted reader "places". Only meant to read a "couple" stories and go on to bed. You may stay up for many hours or all night. It's just hard to put it down.
The wild thing is one's ability to EXPLAIN "why"!
There is that of the "childlike" spirit that grabs a person. And, it feels good. The simple stories, and humor, add tremendously to the profound messages, life lessons, contained therein. Did not want to stop, but did at 3am.
Red Elk, this book is excellent, and it makes me feel as one stepping into another dimension, another time, another way of life. A life with simple pleasures, love, and safety. Can see "things". "Feel" things - Compassion. Hard to describe. JUST LOVE IT!
This book is definitely an experience, not at earth-head level, but at the inner being level.
If you are a spiritual seeker, "just buy it and start reading in a quiet place", see what happens.
THANK YOU RED ELK!
I imagine that is what Jesus was like when he walked in the flesh--to know Him, at least for the sincere seeker, for the chosen of God, was to love Him. Red Elk clearly and honestly wishes to emulate our big brother, and in this and other ways he succeeds. He opens up the coffers of his quite amazing mind and lets us in to share the riches there. It is a such gift.
Further, his book reveals that Red Elk has the Spirit of Truth along with the childlike joy and generosity that makes him such a charming man. It's clear throughout who Red Elk loves best--God--and this allows him to love us, too, even strangers, and to point us continuously back to the Creator as the source of all that is valuable.
I am grateful for this book and snatched it up as soon as I could. I am on my 2nd reading. Don't be surprised, if you are a true seeker, if you find that this is more than just a book--that it is magical. If you read it aloud to someone who does not have the Spirit of Truth, the words fall flat. If you have the Spirit of Truth, though, the message flies alive off the page and become part of your heart.
It is worth every penny.
