Fools Crow: Wisdom and Power (Indigenous Wisdom Classics) Reviews
I have not read Mails' other book
I purchased this book several years ago shortly after I began my studies of Native American Medicine people.
This book is unparalleled on its insight, told by a rare American who befriended the inimitable Grandfather Fools Crow. We are fortunate to possess such a treasure. Read this and know a way of thinking, a way of seeing, that cannot...ought not...be passed by unnoticed. Nourished by a purpose & dignity unsurpassed, Fools Crow made a gift of his perspective with a Minister whose friendship was genuine. The late Mails was a rare man. Fools Crow was a man Beyond men. Be wise by obtaining and cherishing a copy. This is more than a mere "book".
I was deeply moved by Fools Crow story, what an example of a man connected to earth and spirit who really walked a true path.
I read all fact based books on Native Indians, thanks. History, Religion, and all.
This book explores the healing ways of generations and a culture that is vanishing. When we as a society search for new ways to heal, we overlook the tried and true ways of our elders that are powerful not only in their healing powers but in there emotional and tradition values that are just as important to the healing process. Fools Crow was a great healer who credited his healing to Wakan Tanka and the Great Helpers. He did not glory in himself but understood that there is creative power all around us that can assist us in accomplishing great things if we let it become a part of who we are in everyday life.This book makes you review your beliefs and opens new doors to the simplicity of healing that is such a wonderful gift from the Creator as practiced by Fools Crow throughout his life and in his legacy.
This is one of the most remarkable books I have ever read! If you want a book that will draw you closer to God, regardless of your religion or beliefs, this is the book. Frank Fools Crow will teach you by his example what a holy life truly is and the power that will naturally flow from living this type of life.
