Kent Nerburn, author of the many Northshire staff favorites & bestsellers, including The Girl Who Sang to the Buffalo, will join us to discuss his work and his latest book Native Echoes.

From the grandeur of the Great Plains to the solitude of the northern woods, from the intensity of a summer storm to the quiet redemption of a fresh blanket of snow, Kent Nerburn's new book, Native Echoes, pays homage to the power of the land to shape our hearts and spirits.

An Ojibwe elder once counseled Nerburn to ''always teach by stories, because stories lodge deep in the heart.'' Using skills learned from Native storytellers as well as a deep reverence for the world's spiritual traditions, Nerburn takes us to an Ojibwe burial, down lonely winter roads, and into landscapes where trees have presence and the earth is made alive by the mystical power of water and light.

Native Echoes is a stark, poetic work that honors both Native American traditions and our western way of thinking and believing. NAPRA Review calls it a ''beautiful book that will touch not only those who find Spirit in Native American paths, but anyone who has felt the presence of something powerful beyond the known.''
