Description

In Lakota tradition, the bow and arrow were more than tools for hunting or battle. The bow’s resilience and flexibility, the arrow’s grace and power, the archer’s focus and patience—in these, we find the essential qualities for living a life of strength, purpose,and simplicity. In The Lakota Way of Strength and Courage, Joseph M. Marshall builds upon the central metaphor of the bow and arrow to provide a treasury of insights, stories, and irreplaceable wisdom. With eloquent prose and an elder’s perspective, Marshall draws from traditional stories, the history of the Lakota, and his own experiences to offer timeless lessons on:

  • Transformation—what the journey of the Lakota people teaches us about preserving what is essential as our external circumstances change
  • Simplicity—the story of Grandmother Grass Braid, who understood that “the more you know, the less you need to carry”
  • Purpose—how the world unveils our purpose to us, as revealed in the story of the Keeper of the Winter Count
  • Strength—the moving story of Henry One Bull, and how adversity teaches us to develop the true core of our strength
  • Resiliency—the lessons of Grandma Red Leaf on facing the challenges of life with the best we have to offer

Once, the Lakota people relied on the ash bow and the willow arrow to provide food and sustenance. Today, these simple tools can offer us something even more precious: a way to nourish our souls with spiritual wisdom. Joseph M. Marshall offers a book that is at once profound, honest, and rich with meaning as he reveals The Lakota Way of Strength and Courage.
