To begin to know spirit through the teachings of the ancients. In a time of transition, one begins to look for answers about living that seem to be missing in life. It seems as if the fulfillment of the promise of the American dream is somehow incomplete. One begins to look for something to fill in the missing pieces. Noodin searched for that missing part and almost literally stumbled on the first people of this land. As he began to learn of their continued existence, they led him on an extraordinary path of understanding. These people who he did not even know still existed, continue to have the gifts of a beautiful culture that respects all things. The goal for Noodin then became to find those gifts.

Gentle, moving and written from the heart. This is more than just one mans journey, it is a glittering diamond of rare value.
This is a book that recounts the story of a man that has hit rock bottom in his life and how he came to turn his life around and find a spiritual balance. As the title hints, this is about a white man that is adopted as an adult into the Indian way of life.
I had a hard time putting this down until I finished it. The author tells it like it is in a simple straightforward way. A definite read for anyone finding themselves on the same quest.

Joe and I both enjoyed reading Jim's book immensely.
Jim offers beautiful insight in The Peoples inner lives with his prose.His insights and stories will lead you down a path where Spirit and myth will unite us all. 
He is walking the path of a "True" Human Being.

I strongly recommend this book to anyone who is interested in knowing more about the First Peoples, and specifically, the Ojibwe tribes of the upper Great Lakes and Canada. There are many books out there today which can give us an understanding of life and cultures of the First Peoples. This book is more multi-layered than most in its' approach to helping us go deeper into their way of life, their thought processes, their ceremonies and what the ceremonies mean, and finally, what one must do in order to truly follow and live on the Red Road. It's one of those books that is so multi-layered that it begs for many reads in order to appreciate all of the messages. If you are looking to be told what to do in your quest of spiritual understanding and enlightenment, this book is not for you. If you are looking for pointers and guidance, and hence be able to decide for yourself what path to take, then this book is a must read. Nice job Noodin, and Miigwich.

James Beard is a gifted writer and storyteller. The reader is fortunate that the author gifts you with a delightful journey through the heartfelt changes in his life. It is easy to read through this book quickly, however, there is also value in periodicaly picking out short passages for deeper insight and meaning. I have gifted this book to many friends who were not disappointed.
