Book for the week #8

Native Wisdom, ed. by Joseph Bruchac

Snippets of wisdom originating from North America’s indigenous population. 

Favourite example: 


What is life?

It is the flash

of a firefly in the night. 

It is the breath

of a Buffalo in the winter time. 

It is the little shadow

which runs across the grass

and loses itself in the sunset. 


Crowfoot (Blackfeet), circa 1840


My rating: 4* (side note: very short and easy to dip into)
