Neither Wolf Nor Dog by Kent Nerburn

Against an unflinching backdrop of contemporary reservation life and the majestic spaces of the western Dakotas, Neither Wolf nor Dog tells the story of two men, one white and one Indian, locked in their own understandings yet struggling to find a common voice. In this winner of the 1996 Minnesota Book Award, acclaimed author Kent Nerburn draws us deep into the world of a Native American named Dan, who leads Kent through Indian towns and down forgotten roads that swirl with the memories of the Ghost Dance and Sitting Bull. Along the way we meet a vivid cast of characters - ranging from Jumbo, a 400 - pound mechanic, to Annie, an eighty-year-old Lakota woman living in water. An unlikely cross between On the Road and Black Elk Speaks, Neither Wolf nor Dog takes us past the myths and stereotypes of the Native American experience, revealing an America few ever see.
