"Grandfather was an anachronism. Modern time and place had no value in his world, for his world was without limits or time. His world was that of nature and eternity. He was truly one of the ancients, part man, part animal, and almost entirely spirit. His home was the wilderness, and in the wilderness, he tested all things. Most of all, he was a searcher for truth. His was a life of grand simplicity that few would ever know, where true riches were defined in beauty..." Tom Brown, Jr. Here is the incredible true story of a Native American whose tribe roamed free, far from the chaos we call "civilization." His wisdom is a remarkable integration of different philosophies, of different peoples, tribes, and religions. Now Tom Brown, Jr. shares the insights of his beloved teacher--insights that speak to the eternal spirit within us all.
