Raven’s Witness a joy!

I enjoyed reading this book recently. It was lyrical almost, in the telling of this man’s journey through life. ( told by his friend) I enjoyed how relatable his questions about life and society, the aspirations of humans in contrast to truths taught by nature and held by ancient native peoples, were. The whole unfolding of the lessons from the earth and what they revealed to him about himself, was deeply moving and thought provoking. Passages from it lingered with me for days.
