The Wolf at Twilight: An Indian Elder's Journey through a Land of Ghosts and Shadows

Kent Nerburn


A notice is left on a motor vehicle windshield, an outdated puppy dies, and Kent Nerburn reveals himself again at the Lakota reservation the place he traveled greater than a decade prior to with a tribal elder named Dan. The touching, humorous, and haunting trip that ensues is going deep into reservation boarding-school mysteries, the darkish confines of sweat motels, and remoted local homesteads a long way again within the Dakota hills looking for ghosts that experience haunted Dan on account that childhood.

In this fictionalized account of tangible occasions, Nerburn brings the land of the northern excessive Plains alive and divulges the local American manner of educating and studying with a intensity that few outsiders have ever captured.
