Sometimes I like to read children’s picture books. This is the true story of Black Elk who was a Lakota Indian who lived through the Battle of Little Bighorn and the Battle of Wounded Knee. As he was growing up he often had visions, but when he was about nine years old he was ill with a fever and had a great vision which gave him the enlightenment to understand the whole cycle of life of both planet earth and all people.
I liked the way this was told, and also the great insight into the spirituality of the Lakota Indians. It coincided nicely with my beliefs and so made perfect sense to me. Great illustrations, very moving and very informative.
